PERSONS, NOT VOTERS

The U.S. Supreme Court denies effort to count only voters in drawing legislative and municipal districts. Challengers had argued only eligible voters should be counted, a method that would have allowed states to ignore non-citizens and others who do not vote.

The court disagreed, saying “total-population apportionment meets the equal protection demand, by rendering each representative alert to the interests and constituent-service requests of all who dwell in the representative’s district.”
