Suit Threatened Over NC Voting Access

News & Observer
Four national and state voting-rights organizations are threatening to sue North Carolina for what they contend are Gov. Pat McCrory administration’s violations of a federal law that requires the state to help poor people register to vote.
The coalition gave written notice to the State Board of Elections and the state Department of Health and Human Services on Friday, triggering a 90-day period for the state agencies to comply with the law or face a lawsuit.
The groups sending the letter were Demos, Project Vote and the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under the Law, and the Southern Coalition for Social Justice.
