The U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear an appeal from a three judge court in Evenwel v. Abbott, a one-person, one vote case involving the counting of non-citizens in the creation of electoral districts. Rick Hasen provides an excellent overview of the case at his electionlawblog.com
This case could have implications in New York. Depending on how the Court considers and decides this case, New York’s 2010 prisoner reallocation law could be at risk. That law required the removal of state prisoners from prison addresses and reallocated them, whenever possible, to their home census block address prior to incarceration.
Evenwel won’t be heard until sometime later this year (or early next year) and there is no immediate impact. Nationally, anything can happen.
