      The Georgia NAACP held a rally Wednesday afternoon to show support of Section 5 of the voting rights Act of 1965.

      Under Section 5, some states, cities, and counties must first get clearance from the Department of Justice or the Federal Court in Washington before making any changes to voting procedures.

      The Supreme Court heard arguments Wednesday challenging the constitutionality of Section 5.
