Recent Development:
On July 29, a panel of the the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit struck down photo ID requirements and other elections procedures enacted under S.L. 2013-381, and amended by S.L. 2015-103. Barring any alternative outcome on appeal, the following are no longer enforceable:

Photo ID requirement contained in Part 2 of Session Law 2013-381, as amended by Session Law 2015-103;
Removal of preregistration contained in Part 12 of Session Law 2013-381;
Elimination of same-day registration contained in Part 16 of Session Law 2013-381;
Changes to early voting contained in Part 25 of Session Law 2013-381; and
Elimination of out-of-precinct voting contained in Part 49 if Session Law 2013-381.
