Sadly with Congress being divided and hyper-partisan it is highly unlikely a new law based on recent studies on race relations in the United States will pass to address the history of voter suppression in various states and counties.
Even recent studies have shown
(which was used when the Voting Rights Act was unanimously reauthorized in 2006) that most voting discrimination still occurs in the areas (from the data used) covered under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act.
