North Carolina Legislature Passes Ballot Access Bill

On October 5, the North Carolina House passed SB 656, the bill that improves ballot access. The vote was 70-44. Unfortunately the conference committee yesterday added an unrelated provision to the bill that affects judicial elections, and Democrats are opposed to that amendment. That is why there were so many “no” votes. UPDATE: also on October 5, the Senate passed the bill, 30-16.
