Perhaps the day will come when such a law is wholly unnecessary anywhere in the United States, but that time has not yet arrived. If anything, recent events suggest Section 5 should have a broader application, but that, too, is a matter for Congress. It shouldn't be the job of the nation's highest court to roll back the rights of minority voters, whether in Shelby County or anywhere else. States that don't discriminate in matters of election law have little to fear from enforcement of the Voting Rights Act. Those that do shouldn't have the Supreme Court on their side.
