FILE - In this Nov. 7, 2012 file photo, a Madison, Miss., poll worker, right, returns to a voter her driver's license at a precinct in Madison. Across the South, Republicans are working to take advantage of a new political landscape after a divided U.S. Supreme Court freed all or part of 15 states, many of them in the old Confederacy, from having to ask Washington's permission before changing election procedures in jurisdictions with histories of discrimination.
