“Questions abound after judges invalidate 2 NC congressional districts”

Charlotte Observer:

The day after a panel of federal judges invalidated two of North Carolina’s 13 congressional districts, state elections officials were working on a Saturday afternoon to encourage voters with absentee ballots to vote the full ballot anyway.

Kim Strach, executive director of the N.C. Board of Elections, and Josh Lawson, general counsel for the board, said Saturday that they did not want voters who received the 8,611 absentee ballots sent out for the March 15 primary elections to lose an opportunity to vote.

“The number one message we want to get out is we want voters to continue voting,” Strach said Saturday afternoon.
