Voting Rights Act at 50 - Pam Karlan blog

Bar nun

March 4, 2015

Professor Dan Tokaji (and the audience) laughs as Pam Karlan, deputy assistant attorney general in the civil rights division of the U.S. Department of Justice, tells the story of how eight retired nuns were prevented from voting at a precinct located in their convent because of Indiana’s new strict voter id law, which was passed without there being a single known case of voter fraud in the state. Karlan’s visit and the discussion were part of the college’s three-part series on the 50th anniversaries of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  Karlan, who is on leave from Stanford University, had high praise for Moritz’s famed Election Law program.
