North Carolina Voter ID Trial Set for Jan. 25

“The federal judge who will preside over the trial about North Carolina’s voter ID law told attorneys in an order this week to be ready to make their arguments on Jan. 25.”

 

Last year, the state’s legislature amended its voter ID requirement with a provision modeled on South Carolina’s federally-precleared voter ID law that gives voters without an accepted photo ID the option to cast a ballot with a declaration of reasonable impediment. “Attorneys for the state have argued that the 2015 amendment made the 2013 legal challenge moot.”
