AN ACT TO REQUIRE THAT A PERSON WHO HAS BEEN CONVICTED OF A CRIME THAT EXCLUDED THE PERSON FROM THE RIGHT TO VOTE MUST HAVE THE INTENT TO COMMIT FRAUD TO BE GUILTY OF FELONY VOTING.
Amends GS 163A-1389, making it a Class I felony for any person convicted of a crime which excludes the person from the right to vote to subsequently vote with intent to commit a fraud at any primary or election without having restored the individual's rights under the law (previously did not include an intent element in the offense).
