Lawyers: NC Voting Suits Continue Despite Ruling

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Lawyers helping sue over North Carolina's dramatic voting law changes last year say they'll keep working to overturn them through courts and at the ballot box.


An attorney with the state NAACP said Monday the civil rights group and others won't back down after a federal judge last Friday refused to prevent the implementation of the 2013 law in the November election.


Lawyer Irv Joyner says there's an effort to register voters and help residents avoid obstacles to voting.


The Republican-backed law eliminated same-day registration during early voting, reduced the early-voting period and sets the stage for a voter ID requirement in 2016.


The plaintiffs haven't yet decided whether to appeal the judge's ruling, which also refused federal observers for the November election. The federal government also challenged the law.
