The NC House has passed the monster election bill (Senate Bill 747) that combines many anti-voter, anti-democracy bills, reversing years of election law in our state.
On August 24th, Gov. Cooper officially vetoed the bill. Now it heads back to the legislature, where the extremist Republican majority is gearing up to override the Governor’s veto.
Tell Your Legislators NO to SB 747!
Contact your state Senator and House Rep and remind them that you OPPOSE this harmful anti-voter legislation and that you want them to UPHOLD the Governor’s veto of SB 747 and his promised veto of SB 749.
Note: If you live in the eastern half of Buncombe County, in Sen. Warren Daniel’s District 46, remember that Warren Daniel co-sponsored both SB 747 and SB 749. It’s crucial that he hear from his own constituents. For sample messaging to Sen. Daniel, see our earlier Action Alert “Stop NC Anti-Voter Extremist Bill SB747.”

This bill is part of a larger national strategy to attack North Carolinians’ freedom to vote. In fact, it was drafted with input from political agents from outside NC – the same people who tried to overturn the will of the voters and throw out the results of the 2020 presidential election.
