All eyes on the Supreme Court

The Census

Gerrymandering

  • Rucho v. Common Cause: After previously being caught gerrymandering along racial lines, North Carolina’s GOP is charged with rigging all 13 Congressional Congressional districts in North Carolina to discount Democratic votes.
  • Benisek v. Lamone: Maryland Democrats are charged with rigging one Congressional district in the west of the state to discount Republican votes. (Yes, sometimes Democrats gerrymander, too, and partly why we need a fair elections system for everyone.)
  • Virginia House of Delegates v. Bethune-Hill: The Virginia GOP is charged with packing African-American voters into 11 out of 100 House districts to diminish their voting power in remaining districts.
