Charles B. Campbell, Esq. Assistant Attorney General 11 South Union Street Montgomery, Alabama 36130 Dear Mr. Campbell:

This refers to Act Nos. 2003-75, 2003-124, 2003-189, 2003-377, and 2003-433, which schedule the November 4, 2003, special constitutional amendment elections in Conecuh, Macon, Marshall, Tallapoosa, and Greene Counties, and Act No. 2003-287, which schedules the November 18, 2003, special constitutional amendment election in Chambers County, Alabama, submitted to the Attorney General pursuant to Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, 42 U.S.C. 1973c. We received your submissions on October 6, 2003; supplemental information was received on October 8, 2003. Your October 15, 2003, letter withdraws your submission of Act No. 2003-75 for Conecuh County from Section 5 review. Accordingly, no determination by the Attorney General is required concerning this matter. See the Procedures for the Administration of Section 5 (28 C'. F.R. 51.25 (a)). The Attorney General does not interpose any objection to the rema~n~n9 specified changes. However, we note that Section 5 expressly provides that the failure of the Attorney General to

-2object does not bar subsequent litigation to enjoin the enforcement of the changes. In addition, as authorized by Section 5, we reserve the right to reexamine these submissions if additional information that would otherwise require an objection comes to our attention during the remainder of the sixty-day review period. See 28 C.F.R. 51.41 and 51.43.
