U.S. Supreme Court Rejects Re-Write of Constitution in Evenwel Redistricting Case

WASHINGTON - Statement by Common Cause President Miles Rapoport

“Today’s decision affirms one of our most fundamental values as Americans: that every person counts. We now turn our attention to the states to monitor and combat any effort to deprive millions of young people, non-citizen residents, and other non-voters of constitutional protections. Our nation’s charter begins with the words ‘We the People;’ that means everyone – not just those who vote – is entitled to equal representation at every level of government.”
