    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    The court decided that the states affected were not given due consideration and were being unduly harmed by a law enacted over 40 years earlier...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    On what Constitutional grounds was the law struck down?

    good ruling.... the information they used to draw these maps was severely outdated.

    one would think everybody would be on board with legislating such important things by using up to date and accurate information.... but it seems some people( namely ,the liberals who are throwing tizzy fits) don't like being accurate or up to date.<shrugs>

    now it's up to Congress to either draw new maps, or kick the can down the road..... I think they are going to have an awfully tough time making their cases for racial discrimination in select jurisdictions, but I'm sure the cases will be made nonetheless.

    the voting rights act has been renewed multiple times since it was first signed into law, including the most recent renewal in 2006. so why is it that the states have only started to complain about it now, specifically provision number 4, the part of the law that was struck down?

    well i would have said it like this ......."it would need to specify those grounds in the constitution"


    one of the problems with the law is that it is not uniform, it only directed at a few southern states, and then only a few counties in those states, under constitutional law, all laws have to apply equally to every state, you cant single people or states out.

    it wasn't ruled on constitutional grounds.... I would say it was ruled on common sense, but that's just because I can't think of a better term at the moment
