Supreme Court to review key section of Voting Rights Act 09 Nov 2012 The Supreme Court on Friday said it would decide the constitutionality of a signature portion of the Voting Rights Act. The justices three years ago expressed skepticism about the continued need for Section 5 of the historic act, which requires states and localities with a history of discrimination, most of them in the South, to get federal approval of any changes in their voting laws. The court will be reviewing a decision last spring by a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to uphold Section 5.
