The Republican-led General Assembly has signaled interest in pursuing again this year a photo identification requirement for voters, an idea John Hood discussed in detail late last year.
The Federalist Society sponsored a debate on the topic today featuring John Fund, national affairs columnist for National Review; Bob Hall, executive director of Democracy North Carolina; Allison Riggs, staff attorney for voting rights for the Southern Coalition for Social Justice; and Hans von Spakovsky, senior legal fellow and manager of the Civil Justice Reform Initiative at The Heritage Foundation.
