    Raleigh, NC– Following the ruling from U.S. District Court Judge Thomas D. Schroeder today that allowed North Carolina’s popular Voter ID law to go forward as planned, Bob Stephens, Chief Legal Counsel to Governor McCrory, issued the following statement:

     

    “This is a victory for North Carolina’s popular law that requires identification to vote,” said Stephens. “North Carolina is joining a majority of states in common sense protections that preserve the sanctity of the voting booth. Today’s ruling is just more evidence that this law is constitutional – as we have said from the very onset of this process,” Stephens continued.
