Another of North Carolina's Commonsensical Laws Passes Muster

RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina's voter ID law is constitutional and should remain in effect, U.S. District Judge Thomas Schroeder ruled late Monday.

"Plaintiffs have failed to demonstrate that Defendants have violated § 2 of the VRA or the Fourteenth, Fifteenth, or Twenty-Sixth Amendments to the United States Constitution," Schroeder ruled in a 485-page opinion.  voter ID law

What's even more significant than upholding the Voter ID requirement is that all of the challenged-GOP passed state election laws were apparently upheld. So after the June 7 primary, there will be no more same-day registration and voting, no more allowing voters to vote in the wrong precinct and a shortened time period for early voting. Also, no preregistration in high schools of 17 year olds. Another key part of the state's election law that was not challenged prohibits straight ticket voting. All in all, these reforms will make it more difficult for Democrats and liberal advocacy groups to herd their supporters to the polls like lemmings to vote as they are told.
