The US Supreme Court v. the vote
Play • 26 min

From ballots and deadlines to envelopes and polling places, if it's part of the US election, there's probably a lawsuit about it. This is the most litigated election in US history, and decisions that could swing the result will come down to the nine unelected members of the Supreme Court. A newly appointed conservative justice has fueled fears about the court's power to decide whose votes count, and whose get thrown out.

What does that mean for people of color who have fought decades of voter suppression? And what will the election mean for the future of the Supreme Court?
