    without federal oversight that did pass these laws. We should probably expand the pre-clearance states, rather than do away with the current ones.

      I think federal oversight should be extended to all the states with respect to changes that affect federal elections (president, congress).

      that said, I am not surprised that the SCt is considering striking down the voting rights act.  they will simply refuse to recognize and accept the fact that face-based voting shenanigans took place on a large scale all over the country this cycle, not just in the old confederacy.
