Honest Elections Project Action Applauds North Carolina State Legislature for Overriding Veto on Key Election Integrity Legislation

Jason Snead, Executive Director of Honest Elections Project Action, released the following statement:

“Honest Elections Project Action applauds the North Carolina Legislature for staying the course and overriding Governor Cooper’s obstructionist veto of popular, common sense election integrity legislation. The new law includes provisions that tidy up voter rolls and strengthen protections for vulnerable mail ballots, and now requires all ballots to be received by election day – a policy supported by 89% of voters according to recent HEP Action polling.

“North Carolina law now bans ‘Zuckbucks’—the private funding of election administration—making it the 26th state to restrict the corrosive infusion of private donations into election administration. But the same group behind the first round of private funding has already created ‘Zuckbucks 2.0,’ the U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence, and two North Carolina counties have already joined. This proves the fight for election integrity is never over.

Congratulations to North Carolina lawmakers for continuing to strengthen election integrity in the Old North State. Their resolve in the face of political attacks and an obstructionist governor is a model for the nation. Now they must be prepared to confront even more obstructionism, this time from left-wing attorneys like Marc Elias who have already pledged to file a lawsuit challenging SB 747 in court, just as they did with North Carolina’s voter ID provision, gumming up yet another democratically enacted election integrity law in the state.”
