Abstract

This study evaluates the impact of the Voting Rights Act on the black electorate in North Carolina. A quasi-experimental research design compares progress made in the forty counties covered by the act (the experimental counties) with an equivalent group not covered by the act (the control counties). The results indicate that blacks in the experimental counties have made significant gains in registering voters, electing black officials, and improving their social and economic conditions.
