A law potentially violating the constitutional rights of citizens Chris Anglin and Rebecca Edwards has been repealed by a North Carolina judge Monday. The North Carolina ballot access law court ruling can be found here. See more on this contentious issue at DC’s voter access archive.
Chris Anglin, a Democrat-turned-Republican seeking a seat in the North Carolina Supreme Court, and Rebecca Edwards, a Democrat running for district judge in Wake County, both felt they were intentionally targeted by a new law passed by the legislature that essentially “retroactively requiring that candidates be a member of the party listed on November ballot for 90 days, or have their name appear on the ballots with no party affiliation.”
Chris Anglin celebrated his victory with a tweet seeking support for his election:
I need your support in order to fight for justice and an Independent Judiciary. I have a big court hearing coming up on Monday.
Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated and they can be made at https://t.co/olEUfVJPtV.
With your help, I can and will win! #ncpol
