(Washington, D.C) – In a significant voting rights development, a three-judge panel of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia rejected South Carolina’s request under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act to implement its discriminatory photo identification measure in time for the November 2012 elections.
The court will allow South Carolina to implement its law in 2013.
