Seen on TPM
The North Carolina Board of Elections unanimously sided with a college student who was barred from running for office by a local country election board, the Raleigh News & Observer reported Tuesday.
In a case decided in Raleigh, NC today, Montravias King won the right to run for city council. Local republicans did their best to challenge King’s bid for a city council seat, (Elizabeth County) arguing that a dorm address was temporary. King's case was one of three cases that challenged the new voting measure set to be heard by the state board Tuesday.
Great news. What a waste of money NC will have to dole out protecting these knee jerk voter suppression laws our mental midget legislators passed.
