Today’s “you can’t make this stuff up” fact about student voter suppression

Today’s news story by NC Policy Watch Courts and Law reporter Sharon McCloskey (“Taking student voter suppression on the road [1]“) contains several amazing facts, but one truly fits into the “you can’t make this stuff up” category.

After discussion the ongoing and likely legally incorrect efforts of Pasquotank Republican Party Chaiperson Pete Gilbert to suppress student voting all over the state, McCloskey reports the following:

“(Interestingly, students at the conservative 6,000-student Campbell University returned to school last week to learn that for them voting had become easier, as a polling place had been moved onto campus. They’ll now vote at the John W. Pope, Jr. Convocation Center there.)”
