Voting Rights Act review could affect elections here
Placeholder Image
The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision this month to revisit the Voting Rights Act of 1965 could have major implications for elections in South Carolina, including Kershaw County. The court’s reconsideration originated out of a case in Shelby County, Ala., that challenges the constitutionality of certain sections of the law. Shelby County government leaders are arguing that federal mandates on voting are unnecessary and are based on outdated records and views from the segregated South.
