Supreme Court to Hear Voting Rights Act Case


Today,  the Supreme Court will hear Shelby County v. Holder. The issue as stated in the SCOTUS blog link below is,

“Whether Congress’ decision in 2006 to reauthorize Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act under the pre-existing coverage formula of Section 4(b) of the Voting Rights Act exceeded its authority under the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments and thus violated the Tenth Amendment and Article IV of the United States Constitution. “

This has the potential to affect attempts in Nebraska for photo id voters registration.
