“Louisiana Repeals 142-year-old Election Law”

VOA:

Two U.S. civil rights groups have dropped their lawsuit against the state of Louisiana after it repealed a law requiring naturalized citizens to show proof of citizenship when they registered to vote.

The law had been on the books since 1874. The Southern Poverty Law Center and Fair Elections Legal Network were suing the state to block its continued enforcement.
