SCOTUSWASHINGTON—The nation’s highest court is rejecting an appeal on North Carolina’s election law.

The Supreme Court passed up a chance to review the law that opponents say limits the ability for African-Americans to vote.

Last year, the Federal Appeals Court in Virginia blocked a part of the law that eliminated same-day registration during early voting in North Carolina. A trial is set for july in the lawsuit filed by civil rights groups and the issue of voting restrictions could return to the Supreme Court before the  2016 elections.
