Rev. Dr. William Barber, president of the North Carolina NAACP called a press conference at 10:30 am to respond to the Senate Rules Committee's party-line vote to add additional voting restrictions to House Bill 589, which originally dealt only with photo voter identification.

WRAL Reports:

House Bill 589 passed by a 32-14 vote. A final vote is expected Thursday, and the House would then have to agree with the myriad changes the Senate made to what started out as a measure to require voters to show photo identification at the polls.

The extreme makeover of the bill by Senate Republicans added changes to voter registration, early voting and campaign financing, among others, and prompted a sit-in in Speaker Thom Tillis' office by protesters demanding that the proposals be scrapped.
