The recently passed Republican-sponsored North Carolina voter I.D. law, if allowed to operate in its current form, will likely prohibit thousands of North Carolina residents from voting in 2016, many of them college students, the poor, and/or minorities.
The North Carolina voter I.D. law is likely to diminish turnout among Democratic voters, a state Barack Obama carried in 2008 and narrowly lost in 2012. The Tar Heel state is considered a key swing state in presidential elections for the foreseeable future.
CBS News takes a look at this piece of legislation and its potential suppression of the vote.
