In Violation of the Voting Rights Act and U.S. Constitution, Each Stage of NC Photo ID Process Burdens African-American, Latino Voters

Advancement Project

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - With a filled to capacity courtroom of lawyers, plaintiffs, reporters and other observers, the federal trial challenging North Carolina’s restrictive photo ID requirement adjourned today.

Holder decision in 2013 – which nullified the formula for federal preclearance of voting laws in states with a history of discrimination – North Carolina’s massive voter suppression law, H.B. 589, is among the worst in the nation.
