North Carolina NAACP v. McCrory
North Carolina NAACP v. McCrory challenged North Carolina HB 589, which eliminated same day registration, slashed the state’s early voting period by a full week, got rid of the pre-registration of 16- and 17-year olds, barred out-of-precinct provisional ballots from being counted, and instituted a strict voter ID requirement. This suit claimed that these actions violated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act and the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution. On April 25, 2016 a federal district court in North Carolina ruled in favor of defendants. However, the case will likely be appealed.
