A measure that would require voters to show photo ID when they vote will take center stage twice Wednesday.
At 1 p.m., the House Elections Committee will take testimony from Jerold A. Bonnet, General Counsel, Office of the Indiana Secretary of State, and the Rev. William Barber of the North Carolina NAACP. At 4 p.m., the committee will take testimony from the general public regarding the bill.
Although the current version of the measure takes steps to ensure that elderly people and students will have ID to vote, the measure is still controversial. It's worth noting that Gov. Pat McCrory told members of the legislature's black caucus that he supports the measure during a closed-door meeting Tuesday.
