US Supreme Court strikes VRA section 4

June 26, 2013

The United States Supreme Court on Monday struck down a provision of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

The Court, in a 5-4 ruling, threw out Section 4 of the act, which used a formula to designate what parts of the country had to have changes made to their voting laws cleared by the federal government. Section 5 of the VRA gave the federal government the ability to approve or deny any changes.
