Yes. The substantive standard still need apply. To think that voting "irregularities" based on some protected factor, be it race, religion, gender, etc, do not exist in this country is silly. There should be wider observation/evaluation of locations and factors. I side with the arguments that the specific coverage formula rather than that the substantive standard need not apply.
