North Carolina Republicans Override Governor’s Veto on Election Law
House Republicans decided to override Gov. Roy Cooper’s veto of Senate Bill 747 this past Tuesday.
This piece of legislation creates bipartisan election boards to establish early voting locations and certify election results.
Democrats worry the changes may lead to dysfunction in the 2024 election cycle, while Republicans argue these established boards will create a fairer election process by taking politics out of the equation.
The bill became effective on October 10.
