RALEIGH—North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue has vetoed House Bill 531, An Act to Restore Confidence in Government, which requires a photo ID to vote in North Carolina.
Perdue vetoed the measure last week, which was approved in the General Assembly on June 16.
Republican legislators have indicated they plan to seek a veto override, which requires a three-fifths majority, when they reconvene in mid-July.
With five Democrats who crossed the aisle, Republicans were able to override Perdue’s budget veto earlier this month.
