But it’s NOT Republican Obstructionism – ‘GOP seeks to curb early voting’
“I think Sundays just should be – some things you just shouldn’t do on Sundays, so I am just opposed to voting on Sunday,” Starnes said’.
Think about that.
This Republican thinks you just shouldn’t vote on Sunday.
So America is only open 6 days a week.
Raleigh, N.C. — ‘Two bills filed by Republican lawmakers seek to cut back early voting and eliminate same-day registration in North Carolina’.
‘Senate Bill 428, filed by Sen. Jerry Tillman, R-Randolph, would cut the early voting period from two weeks to one and would eliminate same-day voter registration’.
‘House Bill 451, filed by Rep. Edgar Starnes, R-Caldwell, goes even further. In addition to cutting early voting and same-day registration, it would also outlaw early voting on Sunday and straight-ticket voting’.
“I just think that we will put some balance into the election process,” Starnes said’.
‘Democrats say such bills are intended to make it harder to vote and will disproportionately affect low-income, working and minority voters – groups that traditionally favor Democrats’.
‘The Sunday ban, in particular, would affect popular “Souls to the Polls” voting drives at African-American churches’.
