'Discriminatory Intent' - NC Voter ID Law


In the 4th Circuit, on Friday, North Carolina's election law package that enforced new voter ID requirements, was found to have been adopted with 'discriminatory intent'. There were several changes to the state election law which included voter ID rules. This ruling follows a similar case in the 5th Circuit in which the Court found Texas' voter ID law discriminated against minorities, specifically, African Americans and Hispanics. Zoe Tillman writes an interesting article about this case and similar cases across the country related to voter ID requirements, "Fourth Circuit Strikes North Carolina Voter ID Law, Finding ‘Discriminatory Intent’."
