An article last Sunday about the 50-year fight over the Voting Rights Act referred incompletely to the significance of Georgia’s revised voter-ID Law. While it did include a provision allowing those without ID to file provisional ballots, the more relevant feature involved offering free voter-identification cards to those who needed them. The article also misidentified the court that upheld the revised voter-ID law. It is the Georgia Supreme Court, not the Supreme Court of the United States. The article also misidentified the location of the residence of a member of the New Black Panther Party who was accused of intimidating voters at a Philadelphia polling station in 2008. He lived in a house a few blocks away from the polling place, not in the building that housed the polling station. In addition, the article misspelled the surname of a state senator who helped pass North Carolina’s sweeping new voting law. He is Tom Apodaca, not Apadoca. And a picture with an accompanying timeline was published in error. It showed President Johnson signing the Civil Rights Act of 1964, on July 2 of that year — not the Voting Rights Act. A picture of Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act, on Aug. 6, 1965, can be found at nytimes.com/magazine.
