North Carolina Republicans are proposing changes to early voting, including doing away with the popular last Saturday before the election. The House gave final approval to the measure 61-40 Friday. It now goes to the House. Rollout of the proposal, Senate Bill 325 , prompted an emergency meeting of the North Carolina State Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcment. The board's chairman Andy Penry said they had no input in the bill and received less than a day's notice of it. The House also quickly passed HB717 with little debate, which makes a slew of changes to judicial districts statewide.
