Some States Voting Right Cases

Two trials have been held before a Federal judge on the North Carolina law, which requires a voter ID requirement, reduced the number of days of early voting, prohibited people from registering and voting on the same day, stopped ballots cast in the wrong precinct from being counted, and ended the practice of preregistering teenagers before they turned 18. A decision could come any day, and the case could be appealed to the 4th Circuit.

In the Ohio voting rights case, a trial was held in November, and there will likely be appeals in that case also when a ruling is made.

A decision is expected in mid-May in the Virginia voter ID challenge with possible appeals.

A trial is scheduled in May for the Wisconsin lawsuit, which challenges reductions in early voting, restrictions on voter registration and the voter ID requirement.
