Learn more about how the 2020 redistricting cycle influenced the 2022 midterm elections, and what can be done to ensure our voting maps are fair in the future.
Unfortunately, incumbents often rig the system to benefit themselves, their party and special interest supporters, manipulating voting maps to dictate the outcome of elections. Two sources of discrimination in voting maps are partisan gerrymandering and electoral systems that under-represent people of color. The result is dysfunction, mistrust and public policies that ignore the will of the people.
Recent redistricting cases and actions
Campaign Legal Center is urging the New Hampshire Supreme Court to rule that extreme partisan gerrymandering violates the New Hampshire Constitution.
Campaign Legal Center is urging the U.S. Supreme Court to reject the dangerous Independent State Legislature theory. This extremist concept would give state legislatures nearly unchecked power to set federal elections rules, handing politicians a license to ignore their state constitutions and courts when drawing congressional districts and writing voting laws.
Campaign Legal Center (CLC) is advocating to reinforce the role that Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act (VRA) plays in blocking redistricting plans that discriminatorily dilute the ability of voters of color to equally participate in the political process.
