The Justice Department said in a statement it was monitoring the election under provisions of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The law bars election discrimination on the basis of race, color or membership in a minority language group.
The department did not give a reason for the monitoring. Tuesday's vote will take place under South Carolina's new law mandating photo identification for voters, and Justice Department monitors observed primary elections.
I wish to God,the State of South Carolina would stand up to the DOJ and say,"we are not a 3rd world dictatorship.We are a sovereign state and Hell No,you can not come and monitor our elections for no particular reason!!!!!!"
