50 years ago, the Voting Rights Act ensured everyone had a voice. Regardless of race or social class, you could not be legally discriminated against when it came to voting. In 2013, the Supreme Court ruled that a section of the act that gave it much of its power was unconstitutional, thus gutting the ability to protect the right to vote.
Voting is a right we should all share. Congress is currently considering the Voting Rights Amendment Act, which would restore much of this protective power.
