TEXAS REDISTRICTING & ELECTION LAW

Updates about ongoing redistricting litigation in the Lone Star State and coverage of election law more generally. This website's goal is to try to make sure the redistricting process and litigation over voting law is as transparent and accessible as possible to the public. Hopefully, it will be of some use to a broad range of interested parties, both lawyers and non-lawyers. Have questions, comments, suggestions, additional content, or a redistricting joke (or two)?

The San Antonio court entered an order this afternoon telling parties that the court’s scheduling orders would remain in place “in the absence of a general agreement between all Plaintiffs and the State of Texas.”

In short, it does not appear the court is inclined - at this time at least - to move up its schedule for drawing interim maps unless the parties can reach a complete agreement.

Under the court’s previously announced schedule, a hearing on interim maps is set for Wednesday, February 15, at 8 a.m.
