PRICE STATEMENT ON VOTER ID DECISION

May 15, 2017
Press Release

Raleigh –Congressman David E. Price (NC-04) released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to leave in place a lower federal court ruling declaring North Carolina’s so-called Voter ID law unconstitutional.

“Much like the poll taxes and literacy tests of the Jim Crow era, North Carolina’s shameful Voter ID law is nothing more than racial discrimination in the guise of voter protection. Rather than erecting unconstitutional barriers to participation in our democracy, the General Assembly should be making it easier for all eligible North Carolinians to make their voices heard at the ballot box.”
