The NAACP Legal Defense Fund is closely monitoring how formerly covered states and localities are responding to the Supreme Court’s decision in Shelby County, Alabama v. Holder . Click here  to review a running, and still growing, list of state, county, and local level responses to the decision, including jurisdictions’ intentions to implement new discriminatory voting changes in the wake of the decision.
Changes in congressional districting attract attention, but local changes, such as moving a polling place, or switching from district-based to at-large voting, also have significant impact on communities of color. We encourage you to let us know of any voting changes that are planned for your community by emailing us about them at firstname.lastname@example.org .
In addition to pursuing litigation with all of the legal tools that remain available, LDF also is urging Congress to aggressively respond to the Supreme Court’s shameful decision and to protect voters of color from discrimination.
