North Carolina Voter ID Challenge

June 8, 2021

Lawsuit brought by the North Carolina State Conference of the NAACP and other local chapters against the state challenging a 2018 law that requires voters to provide one of ten authorized photo IDs to vote either absentee or in person. The complaint alleges that the voter ID provision disproportionately burdens African American and Latino residents in violation of the Voting Rights Act and the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments.
