Voter ID lawsuit hearing to be held in Winston-Salem
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A hearing over the voter ID lawsuit will be held Thursday at the Federal Courthouse in Winston-Salem.
The biggest argument is whether the trial will take place before or after the 2014 elections.
Supporters of the law say it will cut down on voter fraud, while opponents say it just suppresses voters.
Attorneys for Governor McCrory, the State Board of Elections and other state officials are suggesting the trial be held no earlier than the summer of 2015.
Attorneys for the NAACP, the League of Women Voters and the ACLU, want it to begin next November.
