Federal court temporarily blocks new NC voter ID law

A judge has temporarily halted a North Carolina law requiring people to show a photo ID at the ballot box. The announcement, which came only as a short note Thursday, indicated that the order explaining the decision would come down next week. The North Carolina Republican Party on Friday called on the state AG, Democrat Josh Stein, to appeal the decision.

I would like to see how this judge defends this injunction when there are already 34 other states with similar laws, as pointed out in the articles. Seems like the injunction is going to be tossed.

Isn't it a bit racist to infer that only black people can't get a state id? I mean exactly how is no one catching that? In my state identification is not issued based on melanin not sure what they are doing out there in NC.

If gop would cease disenfranchising voters... Valid voters .. N both sides stop fricking gerrymandering... ... You would see the power in the hands of the public... Where it belongs any voter disenfranchised every single voter is also disenfranchised...... To do so is a corruption of process afforded in a this republic founded on Greek principles of democracy... Voting is what let's freedom ring

N in NC u find super impoverished white n black elders... Due to factory closings n tobacco decline... Living there is eye opening.... Ie Winston Salem is a city formed by two cities.. One white no blacks allowed in the day n another shanty town for blacks....... It's still bizzare... Clear example of have n have nots...

V... The vote is state to state regulated.. No national standard law on how vote is conducted... To some folks id is a luxury placed beyond their economical reach.. Some to embarrassed to come in an apply due to literacy... NC once was a huge manufacturer of textiles n furniture... N tobacco... Then those got crushed... Starting in eighties... Twas my home state for years..

Paul. Believe it or not photo Id costs money to get n change n lots can not afford it... It's biggest reason I am given when someone hands me one that's not valid due to an address change... Or for elderly who no longer drive... The economy for many is still not good... There is still a moderate illiteracy problem in certain counties...for some older elders... I kid u not...
