Issues

Voting rights legislation

Apodaca moved an "omnibus voting rights bill" to the North Carolina State Senate. Included in the bill were removal of the state's early voting period, Sunday voting, and same-day registration provisions. Some critics of the bill said it would hurt Democrats, who cast nearly 50% more early voting ballots than Republicans in 2012, and African-Americans, who accounted for almost 30% of all early voting in 2012. Apodaca, however, stated his belief that the law would improve the integrity of the voting process. Because of the Supreme Court's action on the Voting Rights Ac, the state would not require U.S. Department of Justice approval before the bill is signed into law.[1][2]
