Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

Residents vs voters…

This lawsuit challenging  the way  Texas draws electoral districts could have far-reaching consequences in elections.  The issue is whether districts should contain the same number of people or whether they instead should contain the same number of eligible voters.

Many government programs count the total number of people, which magnifies the power of urban areas and diminishes that of rural areas.   That is an advantage Democrats will fight furiously to keep,  so you can be sure they are watching this case closely.
