BREAKING: North Carolina Legislature Approves Nation's Most Restrictive Voter Suppression Law

Late Thursday night, the North Carolina state legislature approved a radical voter suppression bill on a party line vote. The measure, easily the most extreme anti-voter bill passed by any state since the Jim Crow Era, now heads to Republican Governor Pat McCrory for his signature. Court challenges, many of them, will most assuredly follow.

1. here is the kicker

From the article"
Allow any registered voter of a county to challenge the eligibility of a voter rather than just a voter of the precinct in which the suspect voter is registered.

In other words, a lot of paid operatives masquerading as "concerned citizens" will be busy blocking any Latino or Black vote they can.

2. can their vote be challenged?

just a few thoughts:

can i sue them for stopping me from voting?
can i challenge their voting?
what is the level of "proof" need to "challenge" and who gets to decide the outcome of the challenge?

3. the way Karl Rove did it in the past was to send mail to each registered voter. If it came back from

the postal service it was considered a bad address. You do that enough times and it will wipe a few out. The computer errors, incomplete addresses (missing apt numbers) etc will really hurt. The other part of the law says you have to b registered 25 days prior to election. I think whatever they're going to do will be in that window where someone can't re-register.
Believe me, they have a plan for this, it will be interesting to find out what it is.
