One eye on the maps, one eye on efforts to undermine voter turnout (video)

Redistricting will be the first item on the agenda for legislators next week, but good government groups are keeping a watchful eye on any attempts to further rewrite the state’s election laws.

N.C. Center for Public Policy Research executive director Ran Coble says Senate Bill 47, which was refered to the House Committee on Elections, could re-emerge during this short session.

SB 47 would would repeal Same-Day Registration, ban straight-ticket voting, end Sunday voting, and much more.

Coble joins us on News & Views this weekend to talk about the session and why SB47 should be seen as an effort to undermine voter turnout in North Carolina.
