Judge: N. Carolina Must Fix Voter Lists

Judge Loretta Biggs, a federal judge in North Carolina, ruled on Friday that state officials illegally dropped voters from the registration lists in the state and are now compelled to restore them. The state must not only reinstate the voters who were purged but also stop any additional purges. Almost 6,700 voters had been removed from registration lists throughout eight counties over the past two years. On Monday, the NAACP filed a lawsuit which resulted in the restoration of voters.
