A judge has temporarily halted a North Carolina law requiring people to show a photo ID at the ballot box.
This means that voters will not be subject to the photo ID requirement when they go to cast ballots in the March 2020 presidential primaries, Rev. T. Anthony Spearman, president of the state’s chapter of the NAACP, said during a Friday press conference.
“This is a long-fought-for victory against voter suppression and for equal access to the ballot in this state,” he said.
North Carolina’s Democratic Attorney General Josh Stein will decide how the state responds to the decision by Judge Loretta Biggs, according to The News & Observer.
