Abstract:
The U.S. Supreme Court's decision to strike-down the Voting Rights Act of 1965 gives the state more freedom in dictating its voting legislation. The court's decision now no longer requires Federal approval if North Carolina, or fifteen other southern states, want to change legislation governing voter identification requirements or redistricting measures. Opponents to the court's ruling believe without protections from the Voting Rights Act, discrimination against minority voting rights will go unchecked.

Abstract:
House Bill 589, introduced in the Republican-controlled NC General Assembly, would kill the fairness of elections in the state. Among the features are reducing early voting from 17 days to 10, eliminating same-day registration during the same period and eliminating straight party ticket voting. The bill tightens voting restrictions, but relaxes campaign finance laws.

Abstract:
The integrity of the recent Pittsboro town races and Chatham County’s land-transfer tax referendum are being debated. Campaign and ballot violations have been alleged by several in Chatham County and the election results protested. Political observers say that this has become typical of Chatham County, and a Superior Court judge ruled that the Chatham County Board of Elections broke the law last year. The issues at the ballot could affect the outcomes of at least one race and the status of the referendum.
