New Yorker: The Problem With Voting Rights In New York State

In the New Yorker, Jeffrey Toobin considers New York’s antiquated voting laws, often referred to by  the GOP in other states when restrictive voting laws are challenged elsewhere. Part of this stems from New York’s laws having been enacted decades ago and not having been subject to the federal government’s Section 5  approval process before 1971 (for 3 NYC counties). The federal government did prevent many local voting laws and changes from going into effort from the 1970s through 2010.
