The movement that required you show ID to attend their rally opposing voter ID is planning yet another event. Will ID be required at this one too?

RALEIGH, N.C. — A caravan of people urging the restoration of the Voting Rights Act will join North Carolina activists in Raleigh in a protest.
The groups will rally Tuesday outside the state Capitol. The Forward Together Moral Movement, led by the state NAACP, will be joined by the Saving OurSelves Movement for Justice and Democracy.
That group coordinated last weekend’s 49th anniversary of the Bloody Sunday March in Selma, Ala. They’re stopping in various states as they make their way to Washington, D.C., where they’ll rally outside the U.S. Supreme Court for restoration of the Voting Rights Act.
Last June, the Supreme Court threw out the requirement that all or parts of 15 states with a history of discrimination in voting get Washington’s approval before changing the way they hold elections.
Voter ID is popular in North Carolina. It’s a non-starter issue, yet Occupy Monday continues to beat their drum on it. Have fun with that. *Yawn*
