Southern court provides voter protections, unlike Chicago 7th circuit

[Updated, 9:30 a.m.] A southern US appeals court panel recognizes that last-minute changes to North Carolina voting procedures so close to the November election will create anti-democratic confusion.

Too bad we couldn't get similar justice for Wisconsin voters at the Court of Appeals in Chicago.

The US Supreme Court needs to stop this inconsistency. Voting rights should not be trifled with.

Update - - An appeal to the US Supreme Court has been filed by the ACLU of Wisconsin. Great news.

Um, considering the SCOTUS is jerking Ohio around on early voting, I wouldn't be too confident that they are willing to stop the shenanigans...
