NC Voter ID law returning to court

RALEIGH, NC (WNCT) – Legal challenges over North Carolina’s photo identification will return to federal court this week.

On Tuesday, a panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will make arguments, which include other voting changes.

The hearing comes two months since a lower court upheld the voting laws initially approved by the legislature and signed by Governor Pat McCrory in 2013.

Those who sued call the laws illegal racial discrimination.
