Explainer: Holmes v. Moore

Holmes v. Moore is scheduled to be argued Monday, October 3rd coming on the heels of the North Carolina Supreme Court’s August decision in NAACP v. Moore, which held that North Carolina’s voter ID constitutional amendment may be invalid — a claim now back in the trial court on remand. This case challenges SB 824, the voter ID statute the General Assembly passed to implement the amendment. The challengers say it’s unconstitutionally discriminatory even if the amendment stands.
