A federal appeals court on Friday struck down North Carolina’s requirement that voters show identification before casting ballots and reinstated an additional week of early voting.
The decision by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit was an overwhelming victory for the Justice Department and civil rights groups that argued the voting law was designed to dampen the growing political clout of African American voters, who participated in record numbers in elections in 2008 and 2012.

Once reserved for emergency situations, provisional ballots were freely handed out across California on June 7 as a Times analysis finds they were used by more than one of every five primary voters who showed up at a polling place.
But the wide use of provisional ballots has not been matched by any broad statewide oversight, with rules changing from one county to the next dictating when they are used and how elections officials decide whether to count them as valid votes.
The California Department of Justice will be releasing new regulations requiring law enforcement to collect and report data involving a stop or detention beginning in 2017. We need your help generating ideas on the type of information police should collect when they pull drivers over. You can submit your ideas here, and have your say.
Alliance San Diego Executive Director Andrea Guerrero is a new member of the Racial and Identity Profiling Advisory (RIPA) Board, which will advise the Office of the Attorney General in the development of the new regulations.
