A federal judge upheld a North Carolina law Monday that requires voters to show certain forms of photo identification at the polls, in a key victory for Republicans in a presidential election year who say the law is needed to prevent fraud.The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and individual voters backed by the U.S. Justice Department had argued that the law disproportionately burdened African-Americans and Hispanics, who are more likely than whites to lack the acceptable forms of identification.The North Carolina law requires voters to show approved credentials such as a driver's license or passport before casting a ballot. Voters who cite a "reasonable impediment" to obtaining such identification are allowed to cast a provisional ballot.
