Voter ID bill clears second NC House committee

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A voter ID bill has passed its second committee test in the North Carolina House and is expected to reach the full floor next week.

 

The House Finance Committee endorsed the bill Thursday on a party-line vote after Democrats again proposed amendments to ease restrictions. The one amendment passed would allow a voter who isn't yet registered to obtain free identification with the Division of Motor Vehicles.

 

The bill requires voters to show one of many forms of identification at the polls starting in 2016. Republicans say it is necessary to prevent possible fraud. Democrats say fraud rarely happens and there is no need for new burdens to vote.

 

The House Elections Committee approved the bill Wednesday. It's expected to cost up to $3.7 million over the next five years.
