HeadLocke Episode 026: The Battle Over Constitutional Amendments

00:00 / 00:15:40

On Nov. 6, North Carolinians will vote on six constitutional amendments.  Maybe.  Multiple legal challenges to the proposed amendments may keep some of them off the ballot.  Dan Way, associate editor of Carolina Journal, joins Terry to discuss the legislative and legal drama behind two of the proposed amendments: one that would change the ethics and elections board appointment process and another that would modify the process for filling judicial vacancies.  According to polls, a majority of voters support the other four amendments – a photo identification requirement for voting, protection of the right to hunt and fish, lowering the income tax rate cap from 10 percent to 7 percent, and strengthening the rights of crime victims, aka Marsy’s Law.
