    North Carolina won a massive victory this week when a federal judge ruled against the Justice Department’s attempt to undo its fair and sensible voter ID laws, reported Fox News.

    While North Carolina had a sordid history of freezing black voters out of the political process, the plaintiffs didn’t show that the law hampered the ability of minority voters to exercise electoral politics, Schroeder said.

    The plaintiffs “failed to show that such disparities will have materially adverse effects on the ability of minority voters to cast a ballot and effectively exercise the electoral franchise” as a result of the 2013 state law, [U.S. District Judge Thomas] Schroeder wrote. That argument was made more difficult after black voter turnout increased in 2014, he wrote.
