Civil Rights Watch: Justice Department Announces it Will Monitor June 26, 2012 Primary Elections in Orange County New York

Justice Department announced on June 25, 2012 that it will monitor several primary elections in Orange County New York on June 26, 2012.  The monitoring of primary elections is consistent with a federal court order which was issued earlier this year.  Poll monitors and attorneys will ensure compliance with the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which prohibits discrimination in the election process of a member of a minority group.  Section 208 of the Voting Rights Act further affords individuals with disabilities the opportunity to obtain assistance by a person of their choice.
