There is a massive push to get people to the polls November 3 or to vote early. Americans are voting without the full protection of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Portions of the Act were struck down by the Supreme Court in 2013. After the decision, 25 states changed election protocols in matters of voter access to the polls.
