Court Challenge to SC Voter ID Law

Papers, please, y'all


Attorneys with the American Civil Liberties Union were in court today seeking to block South Carolina from enacting a voter ID law that will keep eligible voters from casting a ballot.

"We're here to protect people's constitutional right to vote," said Nancy Abudu, senior staff attorney with the ACLU Voting Rights Project. "South Carolina has a troubling history of suppressing the right to vote, and this law disproportionately impacts minorities, the elderly and other groups."
