After months of research and writing, I have finally finished my first undergraduate law journal article! In this paper I discuss the history of the 14th and 15th Amendments, voter discrimination, and the Voting Rights Act. I also analyze the recent 2013 Supreme Court decision that struck down the Act’s coverage formula which enabled it to require states with rampant voter discrimination records to submit all changes to their election laws to the federal government for approval.

If the article is too long for you, I’ll be posting excerpts from important bits of it over the next few weeks on this blog!
