The Bipartisan Amendment: Victims’ Rights

 

The official start to election season is right around the corner as summer comes to an end. And this year in North Carolina, the talk isn’t about a candidate; it’s not about legislative elections or even county candidates. This year in North Carolina, the coverage is focused on a slate of six constitutional amendments that will be on the November ballot.

Constitutional Level Rights for Victims are Important

 

There has been a lot of attention focused on the slate of six constitutional amendments that North Carolina voters will consider on November 6. Partisan controversy has swirled around the package - but one of the amendments deserves consideration outside of the group. Victims’ rights should not be dragged into the partisan rancor.

Marsy's Law will be on North Carolina's Nov. 6 Ballot!

 

North Carolina's General Assembly passed Marsy's Law - the constitutional amendment guaranteeing equal rights to victims of crime during the last week of the legislative session. The amendment needed to pass 3/5 of both chambers of the General Assembly to be placed on the November ballot for voters to decide. Marsy's Law gained significantly more votes than needed in both chambers - with an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 45-1 in the Senate and 107-9 in the House.

North Carolina Voters Support Constitutional Victims' Rights

 

The daily barrage of polling data during an intense election cycle can leave voters weary of the process. But along with the daily drum of data and numbers telling us what different groups of people are thinking about every topic imaginable, there is an underlying truth and science to this field. And while 2016 showed that polling is by no stretch an exact science, an issue that is supported by 8 out of 10 polled voters is in overwhelmingly solid territory.
