Supreme Court struck down the heart of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 by a 5 to 4 vote. This would allow nine states, mostly in the South, to change their election laws without advanced federal approval. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 was a landmark achievement of the civil rights movement that outlawed discriminatory voting practices against minority groups, most specifically the African American community. The law had been effective in protecting new minority groups such as Hispanics from racial gerrymandering and laws requiring at-large voting places with a sizable black minority.
