State leaders to discuss Voting Rights Act

Posted: Updated:


State Representative Hank Sanders sent out a news release this morning about a news conference this morning in Montgomery.  The National Coalition of Leaders to Save Section 5 will be in the Joint Briefing Room on the 8th Floor of the Alabama State House.  They will begin at 11:30AM

Those speaking at this conference will include elected officials and other leaders.  According to Sanders, "The group of elected officials and other leaders will be discussing future plans and events concerning Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act as well as Trayvon Martin."

The group has raised concerns about Section Five ever since the Supreme Court ruled that Alabama does not need to get pre-clearance before requiring voters to show their identification.
