Skip to comments.N.C. sued soon after voter ID bill signed into law
Posted on 08/13/2013 7:50:50 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
North Carolina Gov. Patrick McCrory has signed a sweeping voting reform bill that imposes strict photo identification requirements on the state's 4.5 million voters, rolls back the early voting period and repeals one-stop registration during early voting.
Almost immediately following the signing, civil rights groups filed lawsuits in federal court challenging the law.

Hillary Clinton: NC Voter ID Bill ‘Reads Like The Greatest Hits Of Voter Suppression’
And is anyone really surprised at this? This adminstration had challenged just about every voter registration law that’s come out.
Of course. Without voter fraud, the Democrats would be toast.
Good news, they will be all thrown out.
Yet... they never, ever substantiate their assertion about “voter suppression.”
Liberals are in meltdown mode over voter ID laws.
What I don’t understand is, what is the basis for any lawsuit? The Supreme Court has upheld voter ID laws. So, based on that precedent, how can there realistically be a lawsuit against this one?
And why do liberals oppose voter ID laws in the first place? Do they not think it appropriate that people identify themselves when they vote? Do they have problems with showing ID for all sorts of other purposes? Is it that hard to get an ID, for those anecdotal stories we hear about some old lady who never got a government issued ID, who has voted ever since the ‘40s or ‘50s, but now will be banned from voting?
I guess I figure, isn’t the proper response to voter ID laws for liberals to make sure their voters comply with the law and get their ID, rather than suing to block such laws???
So, they just skip the proper state court systems now and go directly to Big Brother federal government. Leftists despise the 10th Amendment and state sovereignty with absolute loathing, and don’t give them any credibility at all over federal jurisdiction.
Let ‘em sue.
It is time for some brave state to tell the Holder collection of cretins to shove it up their collective septic Obamaholes.
And then wait at the border for some fed to place their polluted feet inside...and arrest their sorry as...er...progrssive gasshole.
I'll believe THAT when I see it.
Democrats trolling for Illegal Votes.
When Kansas was passing their election integrity law, they challenged the Dem/Marxists to produce one qualified voter who would be prevented from voting because of the law. The Dem/Marxists couldn't produce even one.
RE: Good news, they will be all thrown out.
You seem to be very optimistic about our court system. After what John Roberts did with Obamacare, I wish I shared your optimism.
There will be little old ladies wheeled into court in wheelchairs who will swear that they were prevented from getting a photo ID. This will be submitted as proof.
They did this in PA, and the law is still tied up in court.
Judging by the previous 2 SCOTUS cases, this will pass muster,too.
Equal justice under law ,but only if you are a Friend of Obama
suing to sustain ability to commit vote fraud. no vote fraud = no democrats in elected office
This is the second time voter ID passed in NC. I worked the polls, this past election, and many people showed up WITH their ID in hand, ready to vote.
The people of NC WANT voter ID. The real issue here is that the Federal government is suing US, and trying to deny us the right to vote, the right to representation.
