Stories from Around the State

The 2021 redistricting cycle was the first one without the full protection of the Voting Rights Act. Without federal oversight, many states and local municipalities have used this advantage to implement racially gerrymandered maps, i.e. district lines that limit the voting power of voters of color.

With the new year comes more litigation. In the past year, the League has continued our work of fighting against anti-voter bills and purges, challenges to new district maps, and pushing back against the increased attacks on reproductive rights. Here are a handful of the issues you may want to keep an eye on in 2022. 

In the federal court challenge to an illegal redistricting plan, brought by Black voters in Baltimore County and several civil rights organizations, Federal Judge Lydia Kay Griggsby granted a preliminary injunction blocking implementation of the County’s plan and ordering them to submit a new plan that complies with the Voting Rights Act by March 8.

LWV of Baltimore County, other advocacy groups, and Black voters urge federal court to block racially gerrymandered in Baltimore County, Maryland. 

The League of Women Voters of Baltimore County and partners files lawsuit challenging racially gerrymandered maps in Baltimore County. 

LWV of the United States and partners filed a lawsuit against the Postmaster General and United States Postal Service challenging recent changes to postal service procedures and equipment.
