A Carrboro alderman wants to make his city the first in North Carolina to let non citizens vote. John Herrera has asked members of the Orange County legislative delegation to take the topic to the General Assembly. He wants future U-S citizens and legal residents to be able vote
in municipal elections. Senator Ellie Kinnaird and Representatives Joe Hackney and Verla Insko say they like the idea, but say it would be more appropriate to raise it during a long session of the Legislature, not the short one that is under way now.
