Gov. Cooper shared the following comment on Senate Bill 250:

"Only citizens should be allowed to vote. But blocking legitimate voters from casting a ballot is a risk we cannot take when the law already prevents non-citizens from voting and has legitimate mechanisms to remove them from the rolls. This legislation creates a high risk of voter harassment and intimidation and could discourage citizens from voting."
