North Carolina – The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has scheduled oral argument this week on the challenge to the state’s Voter Identification requirement for registering to vote.  The 2013 changes in the law include:

  • a photo identification requirement
  • a reduced early voting period
  • elimination of same-day registration during the early voting period; and
  • disqualification of ballots cast in the wrong voting precinct.

A preliminary injunction is temporarily allowing out-of-precinct voting and same-day registration pending a court decision. Read more at WRAL.com.
