Appeals Court Denies Early Voting Time in NC Counties

A group of North Carolina voters that wants to expand Early In-Person voting in the Presidential battleground State has lost its case before a Federal Appeals Court.

A Three-Judge panel on the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday denied the emergency motion focused on Five Counties that include the Cities of Charlotte, Greensboro, Winston-Salem and Wilmington.

A Trial Court Judge refused the same request last week.

The Voters' lawyers argued the Counties weren't complying with the 4th Circuit's ruling in July striking down portions of a 2013 law that reduced the Early-Voting period by seven days. It now covers 17 days, until Wednesday, in the Counties hardest hit by Hurricane Matthew.
