The Supreme Court may rule as early as today on the Voting Rights Act. At issue is Section 5 that requires states that have a history of voter discrimination (state or local) notify the federal government before making changes to electoral rules.

It is very telling regarding the state of this union that SCOTUS still has to rule on such issues.
