Courts make photo ID less likely in N Carolina 2020 voting

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina's newest voter photo identification law seems flawed by “discriminatory intent” and should have been blocked months ago, a state appeals court ruled on Tuesday, creating another obstacle to implementing a requirement now demanded by the state constitution.

The ruling doesn't change the current process for early in-person voting, which is already under way in the March 3 primary. That's because a federal judge already granted a request by the state NAACP and local chapters to block the ID requirement from being imposed, at least through the primary.

With the state and federal preliminary injunctions in place, chances are dwindling that the voter ID requirement will be carried out in any 2020 election.

The ruling by the three-judge Court of Appeals panel was unanimous, reversing last July's lower court decision that refused to prevent implementation of the photo ID requirement approved by the Republican-controlled General Assembly while a challenge goes to trial. The law came swiftly after voters added an ID mandate to the state constitution in November 2018.
