    From The New York Times 29 July 2016:
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    The scurrilous attempt by North Carolina Republicans to suppress the rising power of black voters was struck down on Friday by a federal appeals court that concluded that the state’s voting strictures “target African-Americans with almost surgical precision.”

    The decision means that the voting power of black citizens in the important swing state will not be hobbled in November by a repressive 2013 law that the court found was steeped in blatant racism, in violation of the Constitution. “Because of race, the Legislature enacted one of the largest restrictions of the franchise in modern North Carolina history,” the court ruled.

    Generally, voting in a State:

    To register to vote, you must be all of the following:

    • A U.S. citizen

    • At least 18 years old by Election Day

    • A resident of the State

    • A resident of the city or township where you are applying to register to vote.

    Now; with those rules out of the way... There's nothing saying blacks can't vote at as many precincts as they can get to.

    Democrats like this decision because, without IDs, you can't prove voter fraud.

    I have been an election judge supervisor in Missouri for 16 years & know the system here is rigged to remove the constitutional right of double digit percent of voters by removing them from rolls on target groups. It's near impossible to vote when you are secretly removed from the rolls. But anyone here can buy & conceal carry a gun unless a court order bars that person. Why are people with a state photo ID, occupancy permit & current utility bill that all prove they live there, not allowed to vote because their name mysteriously disappeared from a BS list just before every presidential election!!!
