NCCU students march to the polls to honor voting rights legacy
Dozens of students at NC Central University in Durham gathered on Monday to honor those who fought for their right to vote by marching together to cast ballots at an early voting site.
"I stand here today extremely humbled because I know that I must contribute the rights I have today to the men and women who risked their lives to advocate for this," said Rebekah Barber, an English major at NCCU and a Democracy Fellow with Common Cause North Carolina.
With the start of early voting also comes the implementation of North Carolina's new voter ID requirement. Voters who were unable to obtain an acceptable ID due to a reasonable impediment will still be able to cast a ballot.
