LWV Reacts to Supreme Court Decision on Voting Rights Act

This week, the Supreme Court weakened the Voting Rights Act (VRA) as a mechanism to fight discrimination by striking down Section 4, which determines the states and jurisdictions that must secure federal approval before changing election laws. As noted in this Huffington Post news article and Huffington Post LIVE interview, the League will be going to Congress to fix this issue and ask them to restore the VRA to its full strength. Solutions for voters are required on an issue as fundamental as the voting rights of all Americans.
