North Carolinas Legislative Coup Shows What Voter Suppression
Will Look Like Under Trump

Republicans have turned North Carolina into a laboratory for subverting democracy.

While the news last week focused on reports of Russian interference in US elections, Republicans in North Carolina were busy subverting democracy at home.

.

What began as a special legislative session to help victims of Hurricane Matthew quickly turned into something very different when the GOP-controlled legislature hastily passed a series of bills stripping incoming Democratic Governor Roy Cooper of his constitutional powers. Most noteworthy, Cooper will no longer get to appoint a majority of members to the state board of elections or 100 county boards of elections, and the state board will be chaired by a Republican in all even-numbered yearsi.e., any time theres a major congressional, statewide, or presidential election. With Republicans holding a super-majority in the legislature, this is a guaranteed prelude to future voter-suppression efforts. The bill also makes it harder for the state Supreme Court, which has a 4-3 Democratic majority, to review future challenges to election-law changes. Outgoing Republican Governor Pat McCrory signed the bill 48 hours after it was first introduced.

.

In addition, Republicans reduced the number of public employees the governor could appointfrom 1,500 to 425prevented the governor from appointing members to boards of state universities, and required the governors cabinet picks to be confirmed by the legislature. These moves have been described as a brazen power grab, but they are more akin to a coup.

.

Republicans have turned North Carolina, previously one of the most progressive states in the South, into a laboratory for voter suppression and offered a disturbing preview of whats to come under Trump. The legislative coup is merely the latest in a series of outrageous and illegal actions by the North Carolina GOP to undermine democracy in the state.

.

First, after taking power after the 2010 election for the first time since 1870, North Carolina Republicans gerrymandered legislative and congressional districts by resegregating the state politically in violation of the Voting Rights Act.

Second, a month after the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act in June 2013, the North Carolina legislature passed the countrys worst voter-suppression law.

Third, even after the courts restored a week of early voting in 2016, GOP-controlled county election boards limited early-voting hours and polling locations.

.

Fourth, despite all of these suppression efforts, Cooper managed to defeat McCrorythe only race in 2016 where Democrats picked up a governors seat in a state Trump carried.

.

But McCrory refused to concede for nearly a month, spreading bogus allegations of voter fraud that included wrongly accusing a 101-year-old World War II veteran of voting twice.

.

The pattern in North Carolina is clear: When Republicans win, they suppress the Democratic vote to solidify power in future elections. And when they lose, they rig the rules to prevent their opponents from being able to fairly exercise and maintain power. This is what happens in a dictatorship, not a democracy. And its a preview of whats to come in Trumps America.
