Advocacy Group Creates App to Track Voting Problems

It’s the first presidential election since the Supreme Court struck down a key portion of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which required certain states to get preclearance if they changed their voting laws. Many of those states have made changes, and an advocacy group wants to know if this means problems for voters. The app is called, “Cada Voto Cuenta,” which is Spanish for “every vote counts.”
