Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's a very complicated constitutional issue. In the case of civil rights legislation the laws were passed relying on the 14th amendment among others. There is very little basis for the Feds interfering in state run elections. In fact, as far as the Senate is concerned voting is not even required. The state legislature can appoint senators. The same may be true with the electoral college, ie; that the legislature can appoint the electors without a vote. If I am wrong on these assertions someone please correct me.

Hey, Grandma Moses started late!
