COURT RESTORES VOTERS WHO WERE PURGED FROM ROLLS (WRAL-TV) — A federal court has ordered North Carolina to restore voters to lists after they were purged due to challenges from conservatives. At a hearing earlier this week, Biggs described that process as “insane,” and her ruling curbs its use going forward. During the trial, there was evidence some of the mailings used to create the challenge were sent to the wrong address, while others were evacuated due to Hurricane Matthew. Still others moved within the county but were still eligible to vote. But county boards upheld those challenges because the voters in question didn’t attend a hearing.
