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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
