NC lawyers reject arguments in election lawsuits

Monday, October 21st, 2013

Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Attorneys representing the state of North Carolina and Gov. Pat McCrory have asked that a pair of federal lawsuits challenging several portions of a law overhauling elections in the state be dismissed.

The lawyers filed their initial response to litigation that seeks to throw out new rules requiring photo identification to vote, reducing the number of early-voting days and eliminating same-day registration during the early-voting period.

The state’s lawyers denied all of the racial discrimination allegations made by civil rights and election advocacy groups and voters. The lawsuit says the changes would make it disproportionately harder for black citizens to vote.

Monday’s responses also ask federal judges to delay rulings on photo ID until a separate lawsuit in state court is resolved.
