North Carolina NAACP sets tours in eastern North Carolina

NEW BERN, N.C. (AP) — The North Carolina chapter of the NAACP is joining with local chapters and other advocacy groups in a tour to mark what it calls victories against voter suppression.

The NAACP says in a news release that its tour is scheduled for Saturday, and starts at noon in New Bern. Another tour stop is slated for Elizabeth City. Along with the state chapter, representatives of the Craven and Pasquotank branches will be represented on the tours.

Democracy North Carolina and local advocacy groups are schedule to join the tour stops.

The groups most recently celebrated the ruling by a divided U.S. Supreme Court, which refused to reinstate North Carolina’s voter identification requirement and keep just 10 days of early in-person voting.
