The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Rucho v. Common Cause, a case concerning North Carolina’s congressional district map. The map in 2016 was ruled unconstitutional because of partisan gerrymandering. Two state Republican legislators led the effort to redraw the map, and they told the mapmakers to consider among their criteria the political makeup of the state’s congressional delegation of 10 Republicans and three Democrats. Those new maps were adopted along party lines and used for the 2016 and 2018 elections. In the 2016 elections, Republicans won 10 the congressional seats, Democrats three. Voter and groups that included Common Cause, the League of Women Voters of North Carolina, and the North Carolina Democratic Party all filed suit, arguing partisan gerrymandering.

On June 27, 2-19, the Court ruled 5-4 against challengers in the case that partisan gerrymandering is a matter of politics and not a matter for the judicial branch to take up. close
