North Carolina Voter ID lawsuit will go forward, but no preliminary injunction

WRAL,  July 19, 2019

"A lawsuit to overturn North Carolina’s new voter ID requirement will move forward, a panel of state judges said Friday, but the court won’t grant a preliminary injunction to delay the requirement while the case plays out.

That means that, as of now, photo ID will be required at the polls in North Carolina, starting with 2020 elections.

That decision may be appealed, but the judicial panel ruled 2-1 Friday that there’s not enough likelihood this lawsuit will succeed to hold off on the requirement.

Photo ID won't be required during the 2019 elections because the General Assembly already delayed implementation to 2020.

...

In their order, the judges dismissed all but one of the half dozen claims attorneys put forward in this case, though the one left is enough to proceed.

...

This case, Holmes v. Moore, is one of a few pending right now on voter ID. One targets the constitutional amendment itself, but this one targets the more detailed laws the legislature passed later to implement that amendment."
