A North Carolina panel of judges in a split decision on Friday blocked the state’s voter identification law, saying it discriminated against blacks.

Two judges on the panel said in their majority opinion that the evidence shows that the 2018 law “was enacted in part for a discriminatory purpose, and would not have been enacted in its current form were it not for its tendency to discriminate against African American voters.” .

North Carolina’s voter identification law was enacted in late 2018 when the state legislature overruled a governor’s veto. Roy Cooper, Democrat.
