Public Speaks Out On Photo ID To Vote In NC

North Carolina citizens are trying to persuade House members to their way of thinking on requiring citizens to show photo identification before voting.

The House Elections Committee heard Tuesday from three dozen people in the first two hours of a voter ID public hearing. More than 100 people signed up to speak.

House Republicans say they wanted to hear from citizens before introducing a bill they want passed and sent to Gov. Pat McCrory this year.

Jo Nicholas with the League of Women Voters says she opposes photo ID in part because there's no evidence voter fraud is a widespread problem in the state.

Adelle Park represented a Moore County tea party group. Park says she had to show ID to vote in northeastern states and makes sense here.
