State of Texas

Texas Redistricting Challenge (Voto Latino)

Voto Latino v. Scott

Lawsuit filed on behalf of Voto Latino and Texas voters challenging the state’s newly-enacted congressional map, Senate Bill 6, following the release of 2020 census data. The complaint alleges that the new districts violate Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act by diluting the voting strength of communities of color, particularly Latino and Black communities. The suit asks the court to block the map and order the creation of a new map that adequately represents the state’s minority populations and allows Latino and Black voters to elect candidates of their choice. The case was consolidated with six others challenging Texas’ redistricting results; the lead case where future filings can be found is League of United Latin American Citizens v. Abbott.
