RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Advocates say protesters against a North Carolina voter identification law will not get their symbolic stay in jail after all.
North Carolina NAACP President the Rev. William Barber and three others planned to refuse bail and spend Wednesday night in jail after they were arrested at a demonstration inside the Legislative Building.
A statement from a group affiliated with the NAACP said the protesters were released on unsecured bond late Wednesday night.
An official at the jail did not immediately return a request for comment left Thursday morning.
