Per the New York Times, “the Supreme Court declined on Monday to address the central questions in two closely watched challenges to partisan gerrymandering, putting off for another time a ruling on the constitutionality of voting districts designed by legislatures to amplify one party’s political power.” Details here.
According to the Los Angeles Times, as part of the budget deal expected to be passed by the end of this week, California will create a new category to describe voters, in addition to the eight existing options that exist, including Libertarian, the state’s American Independent Party and No Party Preference.
The new category will label voters as having an “Unknown” party preference and would apply mostly to voters registering at the Department of Motor Vehicles, where a new voter registration process recently was implemented. You can read the story here.
