Case Information

Federal court challenge to Texas congressional maps. Texas earned two additional congressional seats due to its population growth between 2010 and 2020. Racial minorities (including those who identify as more than one race) comprised 95% of the state’s population growth yet the number of majority-Latino districts decreased from 8 to 7, the number of majority-Black districts decreased from 1 to 0, while the number of majority-White districts increased from 22 to 23. Plaintiffs argue that these changes constitute vote dilution in violation of the federal Voting Rights Act.
