PHOTO ID, SAME-DAY REGISTRATION, OUT-OF-PRECINCT VOTING, & PRE-REGISTRATION

 On July 29, a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit struck down photo ID requirements and other elections procedures enacted under S.L. 2013-381 and amended by S.L. 2015-103.  Barring any alternative outcome on appeal, the following are no longer enforceable:

  • Photo ID requirement contained in Part 2 of Session Law 2013-381, as amended by Session Law 2015-103;
  • Removal of pre-registration contained in Part 12 of Session Law 2013-381;
  • Elimination of same-day registration contained in Part 16 of Session Law 2013-381;
  • Changes to early voting contained in Part 25 of Session Law 2013-381; and
  • Elimination of out-of-precinct voting contained in Part 49 of Session Law 2013-381.

The district court order is available here. Please check back at this website for updates as they become available.
