States Voting Rights

FILE - This Feb. 27, 201,3 file photo shows people waiting in line outside the Supreme Court in Washington to listen to oral arguments in the Shelby County, Ala., v. Holder voting rights case. The justices are hearing arguments in a challenge to the part of the Voting Rights Act that forces places with a history of discrimination, mainly in the Deep South, to get approval before they make any change in the way elections are held. Newly emboldened by a Supreme Court decision that struck down the heart of the Voting Rights Act, a growing number of Republican-led states are moving aggressively to tighten voting rules, prompting lawsuits from the Obama administration and voting rights activists who say the measures disproportionately impact minorities.
