members arein Ihe forefront of those seeking broader coverage As it now is drawn the meas ure aimed at eliminating racial discrimination in voting would affect Alabama Alaska Louisi ana Georgia Mississippi South Carolina and Virginia plus 34 counties in North Carolina and one county each in Maine Idaho and Arizona This is because the bills pro vision for appointment of feder al registrars
