Gerrymandering Lawsuit Heads to Utah Supreme Court


Salt Lake City, UT - Today, Campaign Legal Center (CLC), League of Women Voters of Utah (LWVUT) and Mormon Women for Ethical Government (MWEG) issued the following joint statement after the Utah Supreme Court took up our lawsuit challenging Utah's congressional redistricting map. The Utah Supreme Court also reinstated the claim that the Utah Legislature illegally repealed Proposition 4, which the lower court had previously dismissed. 

"Regardless of which court hears our case, the facts remain the same. Utah's legislature gerrymandered their congressional map to lock in power and undermined the will of voters in the process. We look forward to defending Utahns' constitutional rights at the state supreme court so every vote counts equally and every voice is heard."
