Skip to comments.NC court reverses judge on voter ID, income tax cap. Ruling doesn't affect 2020 vote.

The N.C. Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that the state legislature had the authority in 2018 to place two Constitutional amendments on the ballot, one capping income tax and the other calling for voter ID.
However, the ruling doesnt mean that people will have to show a photo ID when they vote this year. There are two other ongoing lawsuits where judges have found North Carolinas voter ID law appears to be unconstitutional, one in state court and one in federal court.
As long as those other lawsuits and legal rulings continue to block voter ID from going into place, people will be able to vote without having to show ID first. The new ruling Tuesday - which dealt with the process by which the two amendments were passed, not their actual substance - cant override those other court cases.
In 2018, that legislature put six constitutional amendments on the ballot, including the income tax cap and voter ID. Four of the amendments were approved by voters, and two were challenged in this lawsuit.
After the NAACP sued, Wake County Superior Court Judge Bryan Collins wrote in a February 2019 ruling, An illegally constituted General Assembly does not represent the people of North Carolina and is therefore not empowered to pass legislation that would amend the states constitution.
But on Tuesday, the appeals court ruled 2-1 to overturn that ruling. Judge Chris Dillon wrote in his opinion that the Superior Court erred by arguing the legislature lost its power simply because a federal court ruled the state had too many majority-minority districts.

If Heels Up Harris and Creepy Joe win, THAT will be the proper time to require ID. If PDJT wins, then they won’t put in ID checks until the 2024 election. As you say, its all about timing for the Commiecrats.
If the Rats win the voter ID you will need is your CPUSA party membership card.
I guess I could live with that as long as attendance to meetings isn't a requirement for getting one.
And, like your driver's license, military ID, etc., it will no doubt have your photo on it.
