The Supreme Court ruled on Shelby County, Alabama v. Holder Tuesday, striking down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act.

The court also upheld Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, but it is unclear whether that section is inoperable without Section 4. The court left it to Congress to come up with a Section 4 replacement.
