|Mississippi||Ike Brown (former chair of the Noxubee County Democratic Executive Committee)||Noxubee County Democratic Executive Committee||M||2003||Democratic primary||D||2005-02||Section 2, Voting Rights Act violation||Vote dilution||Absentee/Mail||Ike Brown, along with the Noxubee County Democratic Executive Committee which he chaired starting in 2000 and the Noxubee County Election Commission, were found to have violated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act by systematically and intentionally disenfranchising white voters. The U.S. proved that Brown and his co-defendants rigged the Democratic primary voting process against white voters by manipulating voter rolls, tampering with absentee ballots, making threats to ban some whites from voting, miscounting ballots to ensure white candidates lost, and committing other discriminatory acts. The landmark case marked the first time the federal government used the 1965 Voting Rights Act to protect the rights of white voters. When violations continued during the August 2007 Democratic primary, the court appointed a Referee-Administrator to organize the county’s Democratic primary elections until November 20, 2011; limited the role that defendants could play in supervising future primary elections; and directed poll managers to apply Mississippi’s election laws in counting ballots and preventing improper voter assistance. The 2007 ruling and remedial order were affirmed by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in 2009.||Referee-Administrator appointed to organize county Democratic primaries through November 20, 2011; defendants' role in supervising future primaries limited; poll managers directed to apply Mississippi’s election laws in counting ballots and preventing improper voter assistance.||http://www.leagle.com/decision/2007934494FSupp2d440_1892/U.S.%20v.%20BROWN||http://www.ca5.uscourts.gov/opinions%5Cpub%5C07/07-60588-CV0.wpd.pdf||https://www.justice.gov/crt/cases-raising-claims-under-section-11b-voting-rights...||https://www.justice.gov/sites/default/files/crt/legacy/2010/12/15/noxubee_comp_0...||https://www.justice.gov/sites/default/files/crt/legacy/2010/12/15/noxubee_remedi...|
