In further reviewing the “oppressive” election law House Bill 589, here’s a follow up to an earlier post with a few more examples of how our new election law brings us closer in line with what other states are doing.

27 states and DC use paper ballots. Now per H 589, North Carolina will be the 28th.

Only 13 states offer public funds to political candidates.  Per H589, North Carolina joins the 37 states that do not.

31 states & DC require provisional ballots to be cast in the correct precinct (according to 2008 data, the most recent I could find).  Per H589, now so does NC.

North Carolina is the only state using instant run-off for judicial races.  3 States use instant run-off for overseas voters in runoffs.  HB 589 eliminates it here in NC.
