In response to questions from Senator Vitter, Loretta Lynch assured the Senator she is committed to enforcing Section 8 of the NVRA. This might be [unwelcome] news to the folks in the Voting Section.
20. As Attorney General, will you commit to equal investigation and enforcement of Section
7 and Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA)?
RESPONSE: The Department enforces a number of federal voting rights statutes, including the
NVRA. If I am confirmed as Attorney General, I am committed to enforcing all of those laws in
an even-handed manner.
