Another federal lawsuit challenging provisions in a new North Carolina elections law
Another federal lawsuit has been filed challenging provisions in a new North Carolina elections law that critics contend will discourage young adults from voting through a popular method.
The complaint filed today/Tuesday/ marks the third such lawsuit against portions of a voting bill that became law last week. The Republican-controlled General Assembly overrode Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper’s veto.
The latest lawsuit focuses on changes made to same-day registration that plaintiffs argue increase the risk that U.S. Postal Service error will deny someone a vote.
Meanwhile, GOP legislators say they can't trust Democratic Attorney General Josh Stein to defend the law and want to formally enter two of the lawsuits.
