    It's about time one of the states fought them over this. The VRA has long outlived it's usefulness. This is 2011, not 1965. The provisions are so absurd that to even relocate a polling place to the building next door requires federal approval. The VRA is also one of the reasons why we have such gerrymandered districts resulting in a lack of electoral competition. We need to move on and stop trying to punish people for mistakes their grandparents made.
