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)?

In all but one age range, women outvoted men in Texas in 2012.  

But that gap wasn’t uniform across the state. It tended to be more pronounced in urban areas.

Here’s a look comparing the gender gap in the state as a whole with the gap in the highly competitive SD-10 (where Wendy Davis battled it out with Mark Shelton in a knock down drag out fight):
