North Carolina Governor Vetoes Ballot Access Bill Because of an Unrelated Provision in the Bill

On October 9, Governor Roy Cooper of North Carolina vetoed SB 656, the bill that greatly improves ballot access. However, his veto message says he vetoed it because of an unrelated provision affecting judicial primaries. There is some possibility that the legislature’s conference committee could meet again, delete the judicial part of the bill, and send it through the legislature again.
