VRA_50 (1)

Key Provisions of the Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2015 (H.B. 2867, S. 1659)

  1. Discriminatory Voter ID Laws Would Not Be Treated Differently Than Other Forms of Discrimination In Voting
  1. Its Protections Include Coverage Of All Southern States With Ongoing Discrimination:

The following states would be immediately covered and have to submit any changes in voting procedures to the U.S. Department of Justice or a federal court, to prove that they would not be discriminatory. Once again, changes in voting procedures would be frozen until they are “precleared” and not test-driven during elections.

The covered states would be the places where discrimination in voting is most prevalent today.  These are: Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia.
