Federal Judge to hear arguments against NC Voter ID Bill…

(Winston-Salem) A US District Judge will hear arguments starting today on whether to ‘block’ key provisions of the state’s Voter ID Bill.

The Voter law also…reduces the number of days for early voting from 17 to 10, eliminates same-day voter registration, and prohibits county officials from counting ballots cast by voters in the correct county but wrong precinct.
