2019 vetoed bill over NC jurors and voting back up in House

Oct 7, 2021

House Republicans have resurrected a proposal to keep more non-U.S. citizens off North Carolina’s voter rolls through juror information.  The House Elections and Campaign Finance Committee voted along party lines Wednesday for the bill. It tells North Carolina courts to send information about potential jurors being disqualified because they aren’t citizens to election officials. Election workers would then figure out whether they are registered voters and prepare to remove them from the rolls. The voter could formally challenge such action. Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper vetoed a 2019 bill that contained the same language. The bill's next stop is the full House.
