IYO Is section 5 still needed? Should it be changed?

If you think section 5 should be retained , do you think it should apply to all 50 States instead of just a few?

  • I agree with both of them. Those states who have this law should get rid of it and move on into the 21st century.

  • No I think in this day and age it's not needed. I don't think any legislation should apply to only certain states.

  • When the povisions were put in place, they were definitely needed. But now the need seems questionable to me.
