Voting Rights

Redistricting has made voting rights a major issue in states across the nation. “As states redraw political lines, there may be some covert attempts to backtrack on voting rights and we have to be very vigilant,” warns Lincoln University political science professor F. Carl Walton. “We have to make sure that people don’t misinterpret the spirit of the Voting Rights Act to use it negatively to affect representation in Black communities.” In addition, African-Americans must turn out en masse at the polls for every election, and not just presidential cycles, he says.
