Senate To Hold Procedural Vote On Voting Rights Bill
The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act would require states to obtain federal preclearance before changing their election processes.

The Senate is set to hold a procedural vote on a major voting rights bill called the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. It passed the House in August.

A bipartisan group of Senators said they reached a deal on voting legislation Tuesday. The vote comes just weeks after Senate Republicans blocked another voting rights bill.
