Common Cause Massachusetts: Testimony in Support of S. 317

May 15, 2013

Testimony in Support of S. 317 which begins, 'The voting age has been 18 in every state since 1970, when former president Richard Nixon signed an extension of the Voting Rights Act. Now, over 40 years later, teens in Lowell are attempting to change the law to allow 17-year-old voters to cast ballots in municipal elections. If passed, Lowell would be the second city in the nation to lower the voting age, following Tacoma Park, Maryland that passed a similar measure on May 14, 2013.'

Common Cause Urges SCOTUS to Expedite Review of North Carolina’s Partisan Gerrymander to Protect Voters

January 23, 2018

Today, Common Cause filed a motion in the U.S. Supreme Court in Common Cause v. Rucho urging the court to expedite its review of the case in order to provide relief to North Carolina voters in time for 2018 congressional elections. Last week the Supreme Court granted a stay in the case after a unanimous decision from a three-judge federal court had ruled North Carolina’s congressional districts unconstitutional and ordered them redrawn by January 24, 2018. In today’s brief the successful plaintiffs argue that hearing the North Carolina General Assembly’s appeal on a slower standard schedule will unfairly result in North Carolinians voting this November in congressional districts ruled to be an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander. This would be a fourth congressional election cycle using an unconstitutional map.

Pennsylvania Supreme Court Rules for Fair Maps Ordering Redrawing of Outrageously Gerrymandered Congressional Districts

January 22, 2018

Today, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania in League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, ruled the state’s extreme partisan political gerrymander in violation of the state constitution and ordered districts redrawn by February 9, 2018. Common Cause helped to recruit the plaintiffs in the case and filed an amicus brief, which offered alternative constitutional maps, drawn by a panel of experts, that the legislature can utilize to meet the court deadline. Despite a roughly equal split in votes between the parties in each election since the 2011 redistricting, Republicans have consistently won 13 of the state’s 18 congressional seats.
