The wait is over.  SCOTUSblog reports that section 4 of the VRA has been struck down — the formula for determining preclearance coverage.  The Chief Justice wrote the opinion, with Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan in dissent.

UPDATE: The opinion is here.  I’ll be tracking commentary throughout the day.
