We Love the Smell of Litigation in the Morning!

An intensely timely, relevant, and penetrating analysis of why the Republican-proposed voter photo ID bill is unconstitutional under North Carolina's constitution, written by an experienced litigator with the Raleigh office of Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice.

Its straight-forward conclusion: the Republican law "seeks to add a qualification [to vote] not found in the Constitution and, in doing so, tries to make access to the ballot difficult for those who do not meet the new requirement. As such, it is unconstitutional" (emphasis added).
