Supreme Court Rules to Preserve One Person, One Vote

Hosted by

The Supreme Court has soundly rejected a new way of drawing voting districts. The justices said no to creating districts based on eligible voters, leaving in place the status quo: districts apportioned by the number of people living in them. In a rare unanimous decision, the court said that the change would be a threat to the American idea of “one person, one vote.”
