DURHAM -- The North Carolina NAACP is among several groups, along with the federal government, seeking an injunction this summer for provisions requiring a photo ID to vote in person and reducing early voting days. At a press conference, Tuesday in Durham, State NAACP President William Barber said the NAACP question lawmakers motives in making changes, and want legislators to hand over their communication with national groups which could show whether there was intentional discrimination.

Barber added, "Once you have lost the right to vote, you cannot ever recover that."

Barber, along with representatives from the UNC Center for Civil Rights and North Carolina Association of Educators, also applauded a judge's decision last week to issue a preliminary injunction which temporarily halts opportunity scholarships.
