    Yes, it does.

    Provides for the assignment of Federal examiners to conduct
    registration and of Federal observers to observe voting in States
    or counties covered by the special provisions of the act
    .
    It's become very obvious you haven't read the act to discover if you are correct or just making **** up as you go along. Read it, I kindly provided you with the text of the act, take some time and then choose how you would like that crow prepared.

    IOW, EVERY STATE had to be abide by the law, or face sanctions

    IOW, contrary to your claims, VRA does not say that it applies only to certain specific states or areas. It says that it only applies to states and areas that acted illegally.

    Wish I could like this twice.

    The word "special" applies to provisions of the VRA, which are different than other provisions

    You don't really think that all the provisions say the same thing, do you?

    That had acted illegally prior to 1965.

    It's like saying we should use the 1899 census to determine our immigration quotas.

    You're absolutely right. The states covered in those special provisions, which are different from other provisions. Therefore, certain states are being covered differently then others.

    The 14th says nothing about retroactivity.

    Those "special provisions" do not say that they apply only to certain specific states and counties
