FEATURING ALLISON RIGGS – A Federal Appeals court last week struck down one of the most onerous voting laws in the nation, which disproportionately targeted African Americans. The law required strict voter IDs, and took aim at early voting, provisional voting, and same-day voter registration. The legal victory was the result of a number of groups challenging the law that included the ACLU of North Carolina, and Southern Coalition for Social Justice.
