Once the census numbers are complete, the Texas Legislature will take up redrawing voting districts to reflect the population changes in accordance with the census results. This will be the first year since 1965 that district lines will be drawn without the full oversight of the Voting Rights Act. Yet, before the Supreme Court declared Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act unconstitutional in 2013, the Texas legislature was able to gerrymander districts in 2010 (see Texas Congressional District 25). Without nominal restraints on legislators in 2021, it is even more important to let legislators know we are watching and make our voices heard during the process. See the state League website to follow redistricting in Texas.
