The Civil Rights act (1964) encouraged the voting rights act to happen. It demonstrations were held on voting rights. It also enforced the constitution.
After the civil rights act (1964) many people began to exercise their rights. Others were upset and began protest and campaign against the African Americans right to vote. This lead to President Lyndon Johnson introducing his idea of the voting rights act to congress.
3.)Who Maintains it and how?
-Attorney General/chief of legal officer
- if someone is denied to vote the judgement will be made by three judges
Would anyone like to share their opinion?
I found the Voting Rights (1965) encouraging. I am glad that the decision was made to give African Americans the right to vote.I feel that America wasn't truly living up to its constitution by not letting certain races vote for their future leader. If all men are created equal than all men should be able to vote.
