The North Carolina State Supreme Court has dealt a leftist lower court a blow and reinstated the state’s voter ID law.

North Carolina’s voter ID law was signed into law in 2019, but claiming it is unconstitutional, Democrats immediately took the law to court to have it repealed. It has been winding its way through the court ever since and a lower court had agreed with the Democrats.

But now, the state’s Supreme Court has given the Republicans who support the law a major victory by defeating the Democrat assault on the law.

Per CBS News:

Another decision from the court would end voting rights for felons who are out of prison but still serving probation or parole.

A trial court had ruled that the state’s 2018 voter ID law was unconstitutional, tainted by racial bias and designed to help Republicans keep hold of power at the General Assembly.

The high court sided with that ruling in December — when Democrats held a 4-3 majority — but agreed last month to take another look at it.

At the heart of the issue regarding voting rights for felons is a 1973 state law that delays the restoration of those rights for some offenders whose punishments do not include prison — which affects roughly 56,000 people.

A panel of state judged ruled last year that the law was unconstitutional and discriminates against Black residents. Defenders of the law say it treats all felony offenders the same and sets a bright line for voting once all punishments are completed.

This is the right decision. And the Democrats now have no recourse to stop the law unless they take over the state legislature and actually pass a repeal of the bill politically.

And right now, that isn’t very likely in a state that has been trending red for several election cycles.
