Washington (CNN) - A deeply divided Supreme Court has limited use of a key provision in the landmark Voting Rights Act of 1965, in effect invalidating the key enforcement provision that applies to all or parts of 15 states with past history of voter discrimination.
The case involved Section 5, which gives federal authorities open-ended oversight of states and localities with a history of voter discrimination. Any changes in voting laws and procedures in the covered areas - which include all or parts of 15 states - must be "pre-cleared" with Washington.
Do some of you actually hear yourselves when you speak. Man, what a bunch of right wing stupidity.

It`s time to REMAKE the SCOTUS.
NOT gonna happen! Not with lifetime appointments, it won't!
If you can`t afford a state ID you are really in bad shape. What`s next from libs the gas used or bus fair is a poll tax.
In this day and age we have totally honest people right? Just like in the days of Marco Polo who when he traveled to China did most of it by Sea because of Robbers, Bandits, Thieves, Murderers and other All Around Nice Guys. Some of you folks wouldn't try to Pull the Wool over my Eyes, would you? No of course you wouldn't. You are as honest as the day is long.
Sad day in our history along with lot else which has been happening to this nation & country. be it the Congress or the apex court people are disillusioned.
