Ditto to both. I'm gonna bite that one JWC

Unfortunately, both of you guys are missing the point of disenfranchisement. Unless you mean something other than my understanding of the word.

To me disenfranchisement means the taking away of, or prevention of the exercise of, some given empowerment.

The empowerment at issue here is the right to vote.

The law at issue specifically protects the exercise of that empowerment.

To say, that law cannot provide the change needed implies that the law did not historically do what it was/is intended to do.

I don't see the logic.
