"The pièce de résistance of the new GOP gerrymanders is some sleight-of-hand in the Atlanta area. A court instructed lawmakers to create a new Black-majority congressional district in the suburbs, which Republicans did … while simultaneously dismantling a diverse neighboring district with a large Black population."

Years ago I had to help redraw the lines between district territories for my company. It was a little tense from the standpoint of people in one district or the other wanting to retain specific customers/zip codes, but from a data standpoint, doing the exercise to keep things technically equitable, was not very difficult.

All this to say, it’s not hard to redraw lines equitably when needed. Any inequality that results is a purposeful decision, and not an accident.

Adam Serwer writing in *The Atlantic* on the recent 8th circuit appeals decision gutting the Voting Right Act. The decision prevents citizens and groups from filing lawsuits seeking relief under the act, limiting it to the Justice Department. A government action. Which, as Sewer notes, is at odds with the intent of congress and longstanding application.

Wisconsin supreme court appears poised to strike down legislative maps and end Republican dominance | Wisconsin | The Guardian

The Wisconsin supreme court appeared poised to strike down the current maps for the state legislature after three hours of oral argument on Tuesday, a decision that could end more than a decade of Republican dominance and eliminate some of the most gerrymandered districts in the United States.

The four liberal justices on the court all seemed ready to embrace an argument from challengers in the case, Clarke v Wisconsin elections commission, that the maps violate the state constitution because they include more than 70 districts. It was unclear, however, how the justices would handle the redrawing of a map and whether it would immediately order elections for the entire legislature next year in new districts. Wisconsin voters elect 99 assembly members every two years, but only about half of the 33-member state senate would normally be up for election next year.

Wisconsin’s Legislative #Maps Are Bizarre, but Are They Illegal?

Wisconsin’s #gerrymandering case has garnered national attention. But a little-explored aspect of the suit — the pervasive presence of “Swiss cheese” districts (see some examples below) — could have huge ramifications for the outcome.

#Wisconsin #Elections #Voting #Politics #News #Cheese #SwissCheese

Map Showing Wisconsin's 3rd and 5th Districts. It shows that there are "islands" of disconnected portions of the 3rd floating in the 5th. On island that contains a single house is shown in an inset map.

Caption reads:
It’s not unusual to see district maps that include islands so small they encompass a block, a few homes or even a single residence. In Outagamie County, boundary lines for the Town of Buchanan create a one-house-wide hole in the Republican district that contains the rest of the city of Kaukauna.
Map showing Wisconsin's 48th and 79th Districts. It spotlights a disconnected "island" portion of the 79th floating in the middle of the 48th. That island, shown in an inset map, contains just 2 houses and a manufacturing plant.

Caption reads:
In Dane County, the Town of Burke is made up of disjointed tracts, resulting in noncontiguous boundaries for the town. Tiny portions of the town are in two different Assembly districts, both held by Democrats.
Map of Wisconsin's 2nd and 88th Districts. An inset map spotlights two disconnected "islands" that belong to the 88th district, but which are entirely surrounded by the 2nd.

Caption reads:
The 88th District, which features eastern sections of Green Bay as well as more rural areas, includes two detached islands surrounded by the 2nd District. Those islands correspond to the boundaries of two towns. The islands don’t seem to benefit either party. Both districts are represented by Republicans.
Map of Wisconsin's 47th District, showing how, in addition to its large, oddly shaped contiguous portion, it has numerous disconnected "islands" that do not in any way connect with the rest of the 47th.

Caption reads:
The Town of Madison, which had noncontiguous boundaries and was part of the 47th Assembly District, ceased to exist in 2022 when it was absorbed by the cities of Madison and Fitchburg. Yet the resulting islands in the legislative district remain. The district is notable for its large number of people living in noncontiguous areas.

Article highlighting what voters in Ohio have been facing for years due to gerrymandering. We are not the only state suffering this way, it's not a group you want to join.

It briefly mentions proposed ways out of our gerrymandered hell to include alternative methods of voting. That's an idea I would love to see all stripes of Americans push hard for in the form of Ranked Choice Voting. It works, period. Both parties know it and fear it.
You can't scream at people to simply get out and vote to change things, or to stop threats, when the system is rigged against their participation.

EDIT: Since I first read and shared this article, it has been edited and shortened by the Guardian to focus more solely on abortion. My comments still stand.

"The new North Carolina maps are even worse than many feared, pursuing partisan advantage with greater audacity and precision than any gerrymander in recent history...

"This almost certainly makes North Carolina the most gerrymandered state in the country, at least on the basis of partisan proportionality. The popular Dave’s Redistricting website assigns the congressional map a proportionality score of zero out of 100 (yes, zero!). To put this number in perspective, Wisconsin and Illinois — two other leading contenders for the partisan gerrymandering crown — earn proportionality scores of 40 and 44, respectively."

"Republicans are heavily favored to retain their legislative “supermajorities” in both chambers — even, in some scenarios, if Democrats win a majority of the statewide vote."

Charles Pierce comments on how Ohio Republicans, who control things due to gerrymandering, have informed voters that the GOP doesn't give a flip about voters' choices — and will go right on trying to outlaw abortion:

"Conservative Republicans occasionally feign surprise that their presidential frontrunner doesn't seem to respect the outcome of elections. Why should he? In the hinterlands, no Republican does."

"North Carolina GOP takes gerrymandering to new extremes with proposed new maps"

"Republicans put forth a pair of congressional maps that would both upend the state's House delegation, which currently includes seven Democrats and seven Republicans thanks to a court-drawn plan. Instead, if these new maps go into effect, North Carolina would almost certainly send 10 or 11 Republicans to Washington and just three or four Democrats."

Senate District 10 Was Transformed Dramatically After Redistricting in 2021

The district previously represented racially diverse communities near Fort Worth, but it now encompasses portions of sprawling rural counties with mostly white constituents.

A South Carolina case about gerrymandering could affect voting rights around the country.

Alexander v. South Carolina State Conference of the NAACP, concerns the way state legislatures consider race and party when they are redrawing state voting maps.

The Supreme Court ruled in 1993 in Shaw v. Reno that racial gerrymandering – when legislatures draw district lines primarily based on race – is unconstitutional, regardless of legislators’ intent, except in rare circumstances.

Voters’ party identification, however, is fair game.

At issue in the case before the Supreme Court is how the South Carolina Legislature redrew its 1st Congressional District after the 2020 census.

The majority Republican lawmakers moved over 140,000 residents from the 1st Congressional District into the 6th Congressional District.

The NAACP argues the Legislature moved over 30,000 of those residents because they were Black, in violation of the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

In past cases, the Supreme Court has interpreted the equal protection clause to prohibit racial gerrymandering.

But South Carolina maintains the Legislature moved the residents to ensure the district was majority-Republican and that residents’ race was not a major consideration.

The challenge for the Supreme Court is that race and party significantly overlap, particularly in South Carolina.
According to national exit polls, 87% of Black voters supported Democrat Joe Biden and 58% of white voters backed Republican Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
In fact, scholars have argued that Black voters are the most politically unified group in American politics.
The race and party connection is even more pronounced in South Carolina. There, 90% of Black voters supported Biden and 73% of white voters opted for Trump.

In Alexander vs South Carolina State Conference of the NAACP, SCOTUS will decide whether moving Black citizens around like chess pieces in mapping congressional districts was based on political affiliation or race. How can Blacks chosen political affiliation which they consider representative of their interests/rights be seen as separate from the state's history of disenfranchisement?

And that they're just rigging elections to pretend not to be the losing minority — which they are.
Their continued, almost "traditional" electoral fraud by means of voter suppression, disenfranchisement & gerrymandering, all their racist conspiracy against voters' rights must have legal consequences. It's unacceptable.

@marcelias Alabamian "legislators" stubbornly defend their racist serial electoral fraud obsessions.

“Maps like the ones [voting rights groups] propose would also create majority-minority districts ‘in greater numbers than they otherwise would have been’ if race hadn’t been used,” the state argued, quoting from the Harvard ruling. “But the Constitution forbids using race ‘to discriminate against those racial groups that were not the beneficiaries of the race-based preference.’” In other words, the courts’ cure for unconstitutional racial gerrymandering would itself amount to unconstitutional racial gerrymandering in Alabama’s eyes.

#USpol #Politics

An important note on #gerrymandering :

You'll hear people both-sidesing this issue, "Democrats do it too."

The difference is Democrats don't need to do it to the abusive degree GOP does to retain power. Democrats are also happy to confront the issue while GOP is not.

Furthermore this whole "you are doing something wrong so I can do something wrong" is a revealing bit of psychology. The moral approach of course is "if it's wrong it's wrong, no matter who does it."

The bothsidesism on the issue of gerrymandering is just that: a psychologically revealing bit of lame false balance. The GOP's essential cynicism and amoral dodging is the problem and don't fall for the invalid topic change.

So if the state STOPS saying the quiet parts out loud, then gerrymandering can proceed? Is that the strategic advice from this ruling?
