Supreme Court refuses to revive Alabama’s GOP-drawn congressional map

  • Alabama lawmakers are being challenged for not creating enough districts with a substantial percentage of Black voters. A three-judge panel ruled that the state violated the U.S. Voting Rights Act by having only one majority-Black district out of seven. Alabama appealed the ruling, but the Supreme Court rejected the emergency bid to freeze the decision.
  • The Republican-controlled Alabama Legislature adopted a new map that still only maintained a single Black district, disregarding the Supreme Court's previous decision to provide more political representation for Black residents. Challengers to the map argue that it dilutes the power of Black voters.
  • The panel ordered a special master to draft new lines for the district map, indicating their disapproval of Alabama's actions. Alabama's Attorney General argued that the new map kept communities intact, but the challengers believe it falls short of providing fair representation for Black voters.
