‘Asking for a disaster’: NC races to start voter ID, with little time and maybe no money

The state’s election administration apparatus is racing to implement new photo ID requirements for voters in accordance with a landmark ruling from the state Supreme Court in April. With only months until municipal elections, some worry there’s not enough time or resources to put the new measures in place. “Election preparation is similar to a space shuttle launch,” Damon Circosta, former chair of the State Board of Elections, said in an email to The News & Observer. “Every aspect of the operation must be planned, choreographed, trained up and prepared. Hastily implementing photo ID, especially if done so on the cheap and without significant communication with the public, is asking for a disaster.” Kylie Ingram, News & Observer.
