Appeal for early voting extension denied

voteA federal court on Wednesday denied North Carolina voters’ request to extend early-voting hours and locations in Guilford, Forsyth, Mecklenburg, Nash and New Hanover counties.

The request was filed earlier this month and claimed the five counties skirted a 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that struck down part of a 2013 elections overhaul law.

The order denying the motion did not elaborate on the three-judge panel’s decision. Early voting begins Thursday.
