This testimony concerns the role of the Supreme Court in reviewing the constitutionality of “laws of democracy,” including campaign finance regulation, election administration, and voting rights enforcement. It compares the different approaches the Court has taken toward two controversies, corporate campaign spending and voter identification laws, and attempts to draw some lessons from the comparison for the Court’s pending review of the Voting Rights Act.
