ACLU and Southern Coalition for Social Justice Condemn Ruling in North Carolina Voting Lawsuit

WINSTON-SALEM, NC - The American Civil Liberties Union and Southern Coalition for Social Justice condemned today's federal court ruling upholding provisions of North Carolina's restrictive voting law. The groups are analyzing the court’s decision and considering next steps.

The groups are challenging provisions that eliminate a week of early voting, end same-day registration, and prohibit the counting of out-of-precinct ballots. Thousands of North Carolinians, disproportionately African-Americans, have relied on those provisions to cast their votes in past elections.
