RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina Democrats argue three Republican state senators are misleading potential voters about when they’ll need photo identification to cast ballots.

The state Democratic Party’s executive director filed a complaint Thursday with the State Board of Elections. Casey Mann wants a board investigation and demands the senators’ campaigns stop distributing materials with the information.

The complaint cited a television ad by Senate leader Phil Berger and mailers from Sens. Chad Barefoot of Wake County and Bill Cook of Beaufort County. Mann says they appear to say photo ID is required now instead of in 2016.

Berger was the subject last month of a similar complaint, which his campaign called groundless. But he adjusted the ad’s content.

State Senate Caucus director Ray Martin said Thursday’s action is desperate and disingenuous.
