(ALEXANDRIA, VA.) – May 15, 2017: The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) today issued a statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to not hear the North Carolina voter identification reform package case.

“North Carolina voters are the real losers in today’s Supreme Court decision to not take up the voter ID case,” PILF President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams said. “While the Court noted that internal politics after the election imperiled the case, the fact remains that hundreds of examples of fraud were confirmed by North Carolina officials in 2016, many of which could have been prevented by the ID package. Tar Heel voters, and the people representing them, can launch a new voter ID reform effort today.”

Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) is a 501(c)(3) public interest law firm dedicated to election integrity. The Foundation exists to assist states and others to aid the cause of election integrity and fight against lawlessness in American elections. Drawing on numerous experts in the field, PILF seeks to protect the right to vote and preserve the Constitutional framework of American elections.
