North Carolina Students Protest Harsh Voter ID Bill

North Carolina’s Republican-dominated legislature [passed the Voter Information Verification Act](http://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/morning_call/2013/04/nc-house-approves-voter-id-measure.html) through its House chamber Wednesday. If the bill passes the Senate, it would only need the governor’s signature to make it mandatory for voters to show photo identification in order to cast a ballot. The governor, Pat McCroy (R), has indicated he intends to sign it into law.
