WASHINGTON – The U.S. Supreme Court today unanimously held in Evenwel v. Abbott that all people count for the purpose of drawing voting districts, not just eligible voters.
“Today’s Supreme Court decision is not only a victory for equality, it is a reaffirmation that our Constitution protects all of us,” said Campaign Legal Center Executive Director Gerry Hebert. “As Justice Ginsburg accurately points out in her opinion, our representatives serve all residents, not just those eligible to vote. Today’s decision ensures that states can, and should, continue to draw their districts taking into account every person’s interests.”
