League of Women Voters et al. v. North Carolina

August 12, 2013



In the wake of the Shelby County decision in 2013, North Carolina enacted some of the most restrictive voting laws in the nation. Common Cause joined with allies in a lawsuit challenging those parts of the law that got rid of a week of early voting, prohibited out-of-precinct voting, and ended same-day voter registration. The lawsuit alleges that North Carolina’s law is discriminatory, unduly burdens the right to vote and violates the Fourteenth Amendment and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
 
Common Cause is represented by the ACLU, the ACLU of North Carolina, and the Southern Coalition for Social Justice.
