Other work on minority voting rights:

In the wake of Shelby County v. Holder, states across the nation have embraced restrictive voting laws, no longer hindered by the burden to prove that such changes do not have a disparate impact on their populations. Such changes include the implementation of voter identification laws. This project (with Matt Barreto, Gabriel Sanchez, and Steve Nuño), combines eight large-n datasets, and empirically establishes the negative impact such laws have on Blacks, Asians and Latinos. Our work on this topic has contributed to overturning these restrictive laws in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Texas and North Dakota.
