Well, many liberals even believed that the act was a bit dated, but just as Went said, this does open the door for many conservative states to use underhanded methods to prevent minorities, who typically vote democrat, from being able to vote at all. We will see if these states try anything...I won't be surprised if they do, since they were doing this past presidential election with the sudden moving of districts in the New England states, even when Section 4 was in place. I don't think the US has moved beyond racism and discrimination enough to facilitate this. But hey, SCOTUS is essentially a bunch of evil old conservatives constantly underestimating or even overestimating current social consciousness and ideals.
