NAACP legal defense fund documenting local voter restrictions

The NAACP's legal defense fund has just released a report on how states and local communities have been responding to the court decision in Shelby versus Holder that struck down parts of the Voting Rights Act. The report (pdf file) includes a section on actions in North Carolina by the state legislature and local voting boards in Wautauga and Forsyth.

They're asking for your help - if you know of other examples of changes to voter access in your community that impact people of color, email vote@naacpldf.org. They're using the information to fight voter restrictions in the courts and to pressure Congress to strengthen the Voting Rights Act.
