A new report from the State Board of Elections found as many as 613,000 voters, or 9.25 percent of North Carolina’s voters, may not have a state issued driver’s license or identification card. The report comes ahead of Republican efforts to push for voter ID legislation in the upcoming session.

The new analysis, which compared Division of Motor Vehicles records to state voter lists, discovered that 53 percent of the voters in question are Democrats and a quarter are over age 65. A disproportionate share, about 30 percent, are black.
