McDonald on VRA Coverage and Bailout Provisions

Mike McDonald has written this very helpful paper on sections 4 and 5 of the Voting Rights Act. It is full of very useful empirical informaton for anyone interested in the debate over VRA renewal. This will be a chapter in a book Russell Sage will be producing later this year on The Future of the Voting Rights Act (Epstein, Pildes, de la Garza, and O’Halloran eds.). (I have a chapter in the book which is an updated and expanded version of my Ohio St. L. J. article, Congressional Power to Renew the Preclearance Provisions of the Voting Rights Act after Tennessee v. Lane.)
