    There are eight Civil Rights Acts that date back to 1866. The years are 1866, 1870, 1871, 1875, 1957, 1960, 1964, and 1965.

    The Voting Rights Act of 1965, grew out of both public protest and private political negotiation.

    Since we all have the right to vote constitutionally, wouldn’t state requirements that require proofs of  citizenship, residency or identification such as a driver’s license violate constitutional law? Gentian Violet  dye is used to mark the hand of those who have voted in foreign countries to assure no one votes more than once in an election. We have no such provision here. It takes a few days for the dye  to wear off your hands and cannot be removed with soap or solvents. I would like to see more federal involvement in the voting process in every state rather than leaving it up to states to muck it up.
