#ncpol Some good news re: voter ID

voteidI picked up some positive info about the dry run on voter ID our local board of elections here in Moore County ran in the primary.  Precinct officials made a point of reminding primary voters, when they showed up to vote, that they would need to have proper ID for 2016.

Anyone who said they did not think they had proper ID was given a form to fill out with all the pertinent information. A grand total of 50 people in Moore County claimed they did not have proper ID.  Someone at the board of elections in our county followed up with these people and determined that actually ONLY SEVEN of them did not have suitable ID. The elections staff partnered with other state and local government agencies to help those seven people obtain suitable identification that would meet state law requirements for voting in 2016.
