(Worthy News) – The Supreme Court on Thursday ordered Alabama to adopt a congressional map that includes two majority-Black districts, saying the current map violates the Voting Rights Act because it unfairly dilutes the power of the state’s Black residents.

The 5-4 ruling upends the state’s map that was in effect for the 2022 elections and had just one majority-Black district.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., writing for the majority, said Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act compels states to make sure their voting processes are “equally open” to all by ensuring that minorities have at least the same opportunities as others. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
