SCOTUS Redistricting… not so fast!
Recently, the Supreme Court announced a decision in Evenwel vs. Abbott case that caused voting rights supporters to cheer. The Court unanimously decided to affirm its continuation of “one person, one vote” – in which the total population is used to draw congressional and legislative districts.

However, the dissenting opinion puts voting rights at risk if other states attempt to use another definition of population to redistrict. At TargetSmart, we’ve used ElectionBase to show how some of these plans could affect the redistricting process in 2020 and beyond.
