Memo 1148 and Report 402 | June 2018

Quantifying the Level of Gerrymandering in Michigan

In a Nutshell

  • The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that partisan gerrymandering is subject to judicial review, but has not accepted a standard that can be used to evaluate whether any state redistricting plan violates the U.S. Constitution.
  • While the U.S. Supreme Court sent recent cases back to the district courts, it is likely new cases will attempt to set a standard for how the courts should evaluate gerrymandering.
  • Michigan’s congressional and legislative district maps fail several tests that are currently being discussed to evaluate partisan gerrymandering.
