Since 1965, the Voting Rights Act has been the primary law used to combat racial discrimination in voting. On March 2, 2021, the United States Supreme Court heard Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee and Arizona Republican Party v. Democratic National Committee concerning the restrictions put in place by Arizona that increase the ability of the state party to cast aside ballots and limit the collection of absentee ballots. These decisions can open the floodgates and restrict the remaining provisions of the Voting Rights Act.
