WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday allowed new voting restrictions in North Carolina to go into effect.

The court, with two of the nine justices dissenting, granted a last-minute request by state officials seeking to block an appeals court ruling that suspended parts of a new state voting law.
