Supreme Court Weighs Turning Back Clock On Redistricting
A case before the Supreme Court this week has the potential to change equal access to political representation as we have known it for at least the last 50 years. In Evenwel v. Abbott, a case arising out of Texas, the court may decide whether apportioning legislative districts, from which state legislators are elected, based on total population satisfies the Constitution’s one person, one vote principle. History, practical realities and fairness reflect that it does.
