Why the Supreme Court Rejected North Carolina’s Voter ID Appeal

The legal ping pong ball has appeared to stop bouncing for proponents of North Carolina’s recent election reforms.

On Monday, May 15, the United States Supreme Court rejected an appeal by the State of North Carolina to overturn a lower court that shot down the state’s 2013 law. The Court rejected hearing the appeal a first time last August, because it was deadlocked in a 4-4 tie, with a vacancy. So, the result is that the majority of the 2013 law is null and void
