Gerrymandering Rests in the Hands of the U.S. Supreme Court

Washington, D.C.

When the nation’s highest court reconvenes in October, it has agreed to hear one of the most consequential election law cases in recent decades. 

When the Supreme Court renders its decision in this case sometime next year, it will be based upon a review of a three-judge panel in Wisconsin that ruled Wisconsin [Republican] lawmakers drew voting districts for the benefit of their own political party, with little regard for the will of the voters. If the Supreme Court affirms the lower court’s ruling, it would be a boon for voting rights advocates. If the Court overturns the ruling, siding with the Wisconsin Republican Party, it will strike another blow to the already beleaguered but undaunted quest for voting parity in America.
