The Supreme Court announced this morning that it will not review North Carolina’s controversial 2013 voter ID law. 

This leaves in place a ruling by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals last summer that struck down the law, citing that certain provisions target African-Americans “with almost surgical precision.” Republican lawmakers appealed the ruling.

This was a big election law with some very substantial provisions...It seems more likely that the Supreme Court will take a case more narrow in scope than North Carolina's- Jeff Tiberii
