North Carolina GOP Overrides Democrat Governor’s Veto to Shore up Elections

The North Carolina legislature finally got around to shoring up their elections ahead of 2024. They passed multiple bills that will prevent the sort of cheating that we saw in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona and Georgia in 2020.

The Democrat Governor of North Carolina, Roy Cooper, vetoed all of those bills, claiming they were based on conspiracies and Trump’s “Big Lie.” We got some good news this week when Republicans in the North Carolina House and Senate overrode Cooper’s vetoes.

Before we get to the meat of the new election integrity laws in North Carolina, you might be wondering why we should worry about elections there? Isn’t North Carolina a reliably red state?

Sure, it is. But we need to be shoring up our elections in all 50 states, not just the ones they stole in 2020. We have no reason to believe that the Democrats didn’t try to cheat in all 50 states in 2020, which they probably did.

 

We decided to compare the 2016 and 2020 results in North Carolina, and there’s something weird about it.

In 2016, there were 4.7 million votes cast in North Carolina. Trump beat Crooked Hillary that year by 173,315 votes.

In 2020, there were 5.4 million votes cast in North Carolina. Trump only beat Joe Biden by 74,483 votes that year.

Trump’s vote total in 2020 increased by about 400,000 over his 2016 total. Yet somehow, Joe Biden’s 2020 vote total increased by about 500,000 over Hillary’s 2016 vote total.

Something weird happened in North Carolina. Trump only beat Joe “No, Please, Daddy, Not in the Shower” Biden by a razor-thin margin in a red state? North Carolina is not a purple state. There’s no way the race could have been that close.

Anyway, things should be back to normal in 2024, now that the legislature has overridden the vetoes from Gov. Roy Cooper.

One major change in North Carolina going forward is that state election boards are no longer in the control of the Governor’s party. The boards will now be under the control of a group split equally between Republicans and Democrats, instead of boards entirely under Roy Cooper. Gov. Cooper says that this bill poses a “threat to democracy,” since he can’t be entirely in control of the election boards by himself.

The legislature also overrode Cooper’s veto on a bill that puts a time limit on how long absentee ballots can be accepted after the polls close. It’s absurd that states like Pennsylvania and Arizona changed their rules at the last second to accept absentee ballots a week after the 2020 election. Apparently, the same thing has been happening in North Carolina—until now.

Another rule where Cooper’s veto was overridden now allows election observers to listen to voters when they complain to an election clerk and take notes—like if the voter has a problem with the machines, their ballot, or some other issue. Democrats really freaked out about that provision, for some reason.

The ACLU and the NAACP issued a statement calling this “an opportunity for voter intimidation and suppression, reminiscent of Reconstruction-era tactics by the Ku Klux Klan.”

Huh? The KKK? Really? The more they hyperventilate against a new law like that, the more you realize that it was probably necessary.

Finally, the North Carolina legislature overrode Cooper’s veto of a bill that prohibits outside material or monetary gifts to clerk’s offices in North Carolina. That’s a biggie.

Mark Zuckerberg basically took over the 2020 election in Wisconsin. His employees actually administered the election in five of Wisconsin’s largest cities—not the clerks who were employed to do it. Zuckerberg also spent his own money to purchase ballot drop boxes, which have now been declared illegal by the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Zuckerberg can’t even legally drop off a sandwich at any state election board in North Carolina, going forward. Neither can George Soros or any other leftwing group. No more “gifts” are allowed.

Now that these election integrity measures have been put in place, despite Gov. Cooper’s efforts to stop them, it will be interesting to check North Carolina’s 2024 election results. If Donald Trump wins by a sizeable margin, well above the 2020 results, it will tell us that the legislature absolutely did the right thing.

    1. I wish the Florida legislature would enact the same laws as North Carolina. The head should be chopped off of the snake to render it harmless.

      1. The rallying cry of the democrats “threat to democracy” is hypocritical. The democrats are the threat to democracy. They want to take away free choice and force every office to be filled with a Democrat instead of a qualified person or one voted upon by the people. People like Soros and Zuckerberg who want to control the outcome to their beliefs, prey upon the weak minded who don’t do their research but expect everyone to do it for them and tell them how to vote and for WHOM to vote. These are good laws that should be in every state. California is going the way of banana republic, thanks to Pelosi and Newsome. Let’s get back to hand counting!! Our something equally pure.

  1. This is good news for anyone interested in working from home and enjoying the benefits it provides. In this article, we’ll take a look at ten jobs (many of them with entry-level options) that hire remote employees. These jobs pay well—higher than the national median annual wage Lets Start Today!

    1. The problem is, those that donot vote. Absentee balots were cast in their names! Who is going to look at a citizen that exists, or check any further than the face of it. How many voters went to vote for the first time in years and were told they already voted?

        1. Pa I believe has a GOP legislature as well with a democrat gov. I would like to see them legislate these laws into law

  2. Kudos to the legislators in NC for standing up to their Democrat governor! Too bad nothing will happen in my state of MI. The democrats have control of everything. Nothing demoralizes voters more than knowing we have unfair elections.

    1. Hey Ann anyone with one hundredth of a functional brain knows when someone or entity that complains about a improvement or the check and balances of election procedures that certification and integrity are in place, then they (democraps) complain racism and voter suppression?? Sounds like someone or something is afraid they (democraps) cannot win without fraudulent procedures or practices!!!! PERIOD!!!!!

  3. Good job North Carolina legislature.
    Our forefathers gave us to very important documents. “The Declaration of Independence” and The Constitution of the United States. D of I starts “WE THE PEOPLE” We have a unique and best form of government. The citizens of the country govern. When those we elect to represent us start ruling with their own agenda, or taking to much power, becoming dictators, It is time for them to go. When they do not ablde by the Constitution of America it is time for them to go. We the People need to let our representatives know how we want to be represented. vote them out if they are not working for the citizens best interest and our freedoms. If they are not abiding by the USA Constitution. We the citizens need to do our part in educating ourselves what our elected representatives are doing. stand for our our freedoms our forefathers gave us. HONEST VOTING system is IS VERY IMPORTANT.

    1. I agree wholeheartedly with Jorene Williams. The Democrat Party has changed since I voted for Republican, Barry Goldwater in the Presidential Election of 1964. It is corrupt now. The truth eventually is revealed. I grew up in two different counties in the State of Texas where the Republican Party was dominant. We have never waivered in our support of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

  4. Georgia is proof that North Carolina did the right thing. Georgia is a reliably red state and went to the GOP in every election except 2020 supposedly. If only the GOP in Georgia had the courage the NC Republicans have. Unfortunately GA is infested with swamp creatures who have been selling out the state to liberal businesses and woke corporations that discriminate against native white male employees and replace them with transplants and immigrants while the Republicans in the state refuse to intervene claiming that intervention is socialism even when refusing to intervene enables the very socialism they claim to fear so much

  5. Here in Ohio, our sicko RINO Gov. just vetoed a Republicans/conservatives sponsored law on banning trans crap for kids!

  6. I live in NC. We also require Voter ID, though its not as tight as it should be. We had problems in 2020. Many people reported when they went to vote they were told they already had. I was in line when it happened to the person in front of me. I received 4 absentee mail in ballot requests. I never asked for them and there is only 2 voters in my household. NC had counted 95% of the vote by Nov 5. It took them 2 additional weeks to count the other 5%. Why? This should never have happened. If you can’t get your vote in by election day, then you shouldn’t be voting. Ballots received after the deadline should be ignored.

  7. This why theses democratic politicians and Attorney General along with their District Attorneys have made a mockery of justice system. The DOJ has become a joke DHS is nonexistent the FBI’s leadership are a complete disgrace and failure. Theses clowns that are grasping at strews trying to apply the 14th amendment has proven to be a last ditch effort to cover the corruption within the Democratic Party to remove Trump from running. The underground government has created a monster and you can’t trust anyone in the media circus, politics along with their political appointees? All fifty states should require an address voter ID, verification of mail in ballots. The proof is in the 2020 election system failure’s.

  8. Yel, demorats are only good lieing and cheating. I say you can only vote if you are in person and have ID no more drop boxes in any state. And only military can mail in a vote — if your not military and out of country then you can’t mail in a vote period. Hopefully the lieing cheating democrats will not win this 24 election. Hopefully they want cheat !!!!!!!!!!-..

    1. They haven’t a chance of winning unless they cheat. So hoping they won’t is an excersize in futility. Hey, it worked for them last time.
