Today Governor Roy Cooper vetoed Senate Bill 326, the “Election Day Integrity Act”.
Senate Bill 326 would further secure the integrity of our elections by requiring absentee ballots to be received by Election Day, rather than three days later.
North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore said, “Sadly, this veto will undermine North Carolina voters’ confidence in the outcome of future elections. Most states already have the same requirement for ballots to be received in a timely manner. Why shouldn’t North Carolinians be given the same confidence in our Election Day process?”
