NC Will Seek Emergency Stay from SCOTUS Next Week in Voting Case

Important bit of news in update to Chris Geidner’s story on the 4th Circuit denial of a stay yesterday:

In response to the denial, McCrory said in a statement that he will now turn to the Supreme Court.

“Changing our state’s election laws close to the upcoming election, including common sense voter ID, will create confusion for voters and poll workers. The court should have stayed their ruling, which is legally flawed, factually wrong, and disparaging to our state,” he said. “Therefore, by early next week, we will be asking the U.S. Supreme Court to stay the ruling of the Court of Appeals.”
