There is no more fundamental right we have as Americans than the right to vote. In the majority opinion, Chief Justice Roberts wrote that the coverage today is based on decades-old data and racist practices. This, despite thousands of pages of evidence presented at trial documenting present-day voter suppression tactics. As evidenced in the 2012 election, long lines at the polls, onerous voter ID requirements and registration procedures, and other measures clearly designed to make voting more difficult for certain communities prove that discrimination and racism are still threat to democracy and efforts to protect the right to vote area still sorely needed.
