Lawmakers Vow to Override Governor’s Vetoes and Prevent Voter Confusion

 Raleigh, N.C. – State House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) and Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) released a statement on Friday responding to Gov. Cooper’s vetoes of two bills designed to eliminate potential for any voter confusion in the elections this fall:

“The governor’s outlandish claim that labeling proposed constitutional amendments as ‘Constitutional Amendments,’ and conforming the filing requirements for judicial candidates to every other public office in the state, is somehow “rigging the system” is a poor attempt to protect political gamesmanship by his party.”

“We will override these vetoes to deliver clear and consistent voter information on ballots this November.”
