Neighbors on Call’s NC Policy Update for 06/24/24

  • On Thursday Republicans in the NCGA advanced three constitutional amendment proposals for inclusion on ballots in this fall’s election. The proposed amendments are: 1) an amendment that would say noncitizens are not allowed to vote in NC elections (something that is already mandated by the constitution), 2) an amendment requiring mail-in voters to show a copy of their voter ID (a rule required by NC law but not currently in the constitution), and 3) an amendment lowering the highest allowed income tax rate to 5% from 7%. The second two amendments are versions of those passed in 2018 that are still moving through the courts, and passage of them in this election could render moot the case against the 2018 versions.
