The Supreme Court struck down the requirement in 2015, based on a lawsuit, Woodall lamented, filed by Shelby County, which includes part of his city. Since then states, primarily those controlled by Republicans, have passed laws limiting the types of identification that can be used to register and to vote. They also have shuttered polling places in areas with high concentrations of minority, poor and rural voters and curtailed early voting, in some cases targeting Sunday voting, when Black churches urge their congregations to go to the polls after services. Voting rights groups have fought these laws in court and have often prevailed, but lawmakers simply make minor adjustments and pass the legislation again.
