FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — An NAACP chapter is joining other local organizations in preparing people for North Carolina’s new voter ID law.

The Fayetteville chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is among the groups co-hosting a town hall meeting on Monday.

Organizers say the event is designed to tell voters how they can protect their votes in November.

Also joining the NAACP will be experts and grassroots organizers who will review the law and take questions from the audience. Local registrars will also attend, and people at the meeting can either register to vote or check their registration status.
