Rice University political scientist Robert Stein is available to discuss Holder’s decision.“Section 3 of the voting rights act may in fact provide a way of getting around the court’s decision to strike down the preclearance requirement of section 5,” Stein said. “States that are now absolved of following a preclearance requirement like Texas can be required to clear any of their proposed changes in election law if a judge finds cause for an adverse effect under the Voting Rights Act.”Stein is an expert on voting behavior, urban politics and public policy; his publications have appeared in a wide range of scholarly journals. Stein’s current research has been supported by the National Science Foundation and examines the impact of the federal aid system on the electoral trajectories of officeholders at both the subnational and congressional levels. Other research by Stein examines collective action among metropolitan area governments and voting behavior.To schedule an interview with Stein, contact David Ruth, director of national media relations at Rice, at 612-702-9473 or david@rice.edu.-30-This news release can be found online at http://news-network.rice.edu/news.Follow Rice News and Media Relations via Twitter @RiceUNews.Related materials:Robert Stein biography: http://bakerinstitute.org/personnel/fellows-scholars/rstein/Located on a 300-acre forested campus in Houston, Rice University is consistently ranked among the nation’s top 20 universities by U.S. News & World Report.
