It’s a battle of numbers as Civil Rights groups and the state of North Carolina debate the possibility of voter fraud.

The plaintiffs are trying to stop North Carolina's voting law from being used during the November General Election. They argue it discriminates against minorities and creates road blocks to the polls for the elderly, teenagers and low-income residents. But the state contends changes in the law create a fair system for all residents and will prevent fraud. 

In a partnership between WFDD and the Winston-Salem Journal, Legal Affairs Reporter Michael Hewlett is covering the proceedings with updates during Morning Edition and All Things Considered. Earlier he spoke with WFDD’s Kathryn Mobley.
