WINSTON-SALEM - A federal judge is preparing to hear arguments from civil rights groups that want to prevent some elements of North Carolina's new voting law from being enforced while the law's constitutionality is considered.
The new law requires voters to show photo identification, eliminates registration on the same day as voting and shortens the early voting period.
The NAACP, the League of Women Voters and the American Civil Liberties Union will argue Monday that a federal judge should prevent those new requirements from being enforced in this November's election until a judge can decide if the entire law is upheld or struck down in 2015.
