One Person, One Vote.

On 04, Apr 2016 | No Comments | In News | By Ashley Meek

Today the Supreme Court unanimously upheld One Person, One Vote.

The decision declared that states may count all residents, whether they are eligible to vote or not, in drawing election districts.

The decision reaffirmed the meaning of one of the most significant democratic principles in American politics, “One Person, One Vote.” As Justice Ginsburg wrote in the majority decision:

“We hold, based on constitutional history, this court’s decisions and longstanding practice, that a state may draw its legislative districts based on total population.”
