When it comes to voter ID rules, some voters are still getting mixed messages about when they receive registration information from their local county board of elections. The state’s 2013 law that required most voters to show photo identification at the polls was struck down by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Shortly after, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to put that 4th Circuit order on hold. However according to WRAL News, a concerned viewer sent pictures of material that was part of a packet sent to a newly registered voter in Alamance County that touted the now outdated ID rules.
The pictures allegedly showed a separate black and white alert box on a different portion of the material, bearing a conflicting message that reads, “ALERT: PHOTO ID NOT REQUIRED TO VOTE.” Alamance County Board of Elections director Kathy Holland explained to WRAL News that the materials, like new voter cards, are designed by the state and printed in advance by outside vendors.
WRAL News also reports Holland as saying “I’m not saying it’s not confusing. It is. We’re doing the best we can administratively.” There will likely be more election mail delivered in the coming weeks that touts the voter ID requirement that’s no longer in effect.
