RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The North Carolina chapter of the NAACP wants the state to answer to what it says is a low number of voter registration applications the state has received from public assistance agencies in the last three years.

Chapter leaders and the Forward Together Moral Movement say they plan to visit the Department of Administration on Monday to submit a public records request regarding the records.

According to the NAACP, in 2012, 41,162 registration applications were submitted from public assistance agencies. The next year, it says the number dropped to 18,758, and down again in 2014 to 13,340.

The groups will then hold a news conference at 10 a.m. to discuss the findings and how they expect Gov. Pat McCrory and his office to address them.
