He was propelled into the political realm in 2010 as part of a lawsuit filed against Attorney General Eric Holder and the United States Department of Justice for the reversal of Section 5 of the Voting Acts Rights in an effort to eliminate excessive federal oversight. This in response to a 2008 local referendum to change local City Council and Mayoral elections to non-partisan. The referendum passed by nearly 67% but USDOJ denied non-partisan elections citing racial discrimination. City Council refused to appeal the decision so Nix, etals v. Eric Holder was filed and was later considered by SCOTUS.( As the case's "damaged party" Nix ran for City Council unsuccessfully in 2011 as an unaffiliated candidate, forced to collect nearly 700 signatures to access the ballot. In 2012 in an effort to mute the case, Holder pre-cleared Kinston for nonpartisan elections. SCOTUS did not hear Nix v. Holder. Fortunately, they did hear another case paralleling Shelby County, AL v. Eric Holder for the reversal of Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act in which the attorneys for Nix v. Holder filed an amicus brief. ( Shelby won that case, effectively dismantling Section 5.As a result of the tandem lawsuits, sixteen(16) states were freed of oppressive federal oversight.
