Judge restores voting rights to some NC ex-felons

A new judicial ruling will open the door for some felons on probation or parole to vote in North Carolina’s elections this fall. The ruling isn’t final, so it’s possible that it could still change between now and November. But on Friday, a panel of three judges from different areas of the state ruled that part of the state’s felon disenfranchisement law appears to be unconstitutional. The judges issued a 2-1 ruling stopping the state from enforcing that part of the law, at least temporarily. Will Doran, Raleigh News & Observer.
