Lawmakers vow to override Cooper’s vetoes
North State Journal // Donna King, David Larson // July 28, 2018
Summary: The N.C. General Assembly said they will override Governor Roy Cooper’s vetoes of two pieces of legislation passed in the special legislative session earlier this week. “The governor’s outlandish claim that labeling proposed constitutional amendments as ‘Constitutional Amendments,’ and conforming the filing requirements for judicial candidates to every other public office in the state, is somehow “rigging the system” is a poor attempt to protect political gamesmanship by his party. We will override these vetoes to deliver clear and consistent voter information on ballots this November,” Senate Leader Phil Berger and House Speaker Tim Moore said in a joint statement following the Friday vetoes. One of the pieces of legislation directs that the short titles of six constitutional amendments appear on voter ballots in the November midterm elections, without additional captions to explain the proposed amendments. Republican leaders said they came back into session because they heard the Democrat-led commission charged with writing the captions were planning to word them with slanted descriptions.
On August 5th, the State Board of Elections voted to
Expand Early Voting in Rockingham County.
No remote sites lost. Hours have been increased.
Saturday and Sunday voting options.
Say thank you to Phil Berger, Bert Jones & Kyle Hall for costing us a bundle in county revenue that was totally unecessary.
Vote them out!
Students win, businesses win, and Rockingham County wins!
