Local elections boards in North Carolina are illegally removing thousands of voters from the rolls, and a disproportionate number of them are black, the NAACP said in a federal lawsuit filed Monday.Voters are being removed because of challenges filed by individuals, which the NAACP says is illegal under federal law less than 90 days before an election. It also asks to restore the names of voters who already have been removed.The NAACP says the challenges have disproportionately affected black voters. The NAACP says the challenges have disproportionately affected black voters, who comprise 53 percent of registered voters in Belhaven, where all the Beaufort County challenges were filed, and more than 65 percent of challenges.However, if someone removed from the rolls tries to vote on Election Day, they cast a provisional ballot that the county board of elections must then decide whether to count.
