Gilda Daniels, associate professor in the University of Baltimore of Law, has authored "Lining Up: Ensuring Equal Access to the Right to Vote," a report published by the Advancement Project and the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.
"Released in the wake of the Supreme Court's June 2013 decision in Shelby County v. Holder finding the Section 5 coverage formula of the Voting Rights Act unconstitutional, the Lawyers' Committee and Advancement Project's report chronicles the impact of restrictive voting laws on voters of color in the 2012 election," according to the executive summary: "It makes the case for the need for improvements in election administration and continued outreach, education, advocacy, and litigation in order to defend the right to vote for people of color."
