Mandatory voter ID update

With this morning’s encouraging decision by a Pennsylvania judge to block the state’s repressive mandatory voter ID law, there has been a string of decisions and actions in this area that can be tough to keep track of. Fortunately, the good folks at the nonprofit news site Pro Publica have a story (“Everything You’ve Ever Wanted to Know About Voter ID Laws”) that they’re keeping updated regularly.

For more information on efforts to impose such a law (and other unwarranted restrictions on voting) in North Carolina, visit the “Voting and Elections” section of the website of the government reform group Democracy North Carolina.
