Great news, but...
They were instructed to redraw gerrymandered districts a while back, which they did. If I recall, judge said if it wasn't satisfactory, they would need to be done again. So that's what's happening here.

We've got other voter suppression going on. Just renewed my driver's license. Had to show birth certificate and SS card or documents, and additional proof of address to get a star on my license. They say it's for ease of travel, but will also be tied to voting. Those without a star may not be able to vote, or will need to cast paper/provisional ballot that will then need to be verified, and could get lost!

Still, the gerrymandering ruling is great news. And a giant step in the right direction.
