A federal judge ruled on Friday that North Carolina’s recent voter purges likely violated federal law, ordering the restoration of voting rights to thousands of people—most of them minorities—in an emphatic ruling. U.S. District Judge Loretta Biggs, who previously described North Carolina’s system of revoking voting rights as “insane” and reminiscent of Jim Crow–style voter suppression, held that the purges constituted a “flawed process” that ran afoul of the National Voter Registration Act.
It’s a start! I mean, I sorta can’t believe we’re even having to deal with these issues as a reality in this day and age, but at least it’s being reported and acted upon!
