7. Gerrymandering is not covered by Section 5.

Section Five covers changes to voting qualifications or standards. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights issued a report saying that the DOJ objected to less than 0.1% of changes submitted to the DOJ by voting jurisdictions.

The VRA does not just cover "Southern States". Non-south states include New York, Michigan, Alaska, Arizona, South Dakota, California and New Hampshire.
