Challenging NC's New Voter Restrictions: Update

NC Policy Watch has a very useful history of the new voter restriction laws in North Carolina and a time-line of the court challenges to those laws, together with some e-mails exchanged between the State Board of Elections and Republican apparatchiks in the General Assembly. Republicans knew all along that their restrictions would disproportionately impact African-American and college-age voters.

We await court action on whether this blatant voter suppression will be allowed to proceed in the fall 2014 elections.
