WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- After a weeklong trial on North Carolina's new photo identification provision of the election law, H.B. 589, the state NAACP says it will make a major announcement on Tuesday, February 2 at 2PM.

Organizers say they will discuss the next phase of action around the photo ID requirement and extra information they might present to the federal court after the trial  The court record is open until February 11th, which means that plaintiffs and defendants can continue to present evidence to the court supporting their positions.

Participants will also talk about the NC NAACP's next major event, a February 13th Mass Moral March on Jones Street in Raleigh.  The annual event has brought tens of thousands of people to the state capital.

"Claims of voter fraud were fraudulent themselves," said the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, President of the North Carolina State Conference of the NAACP.  "We have a moral mandate and we intend to challenge attacks on the right to vote in the courts and in the streets."
