2018 Midterms: What Voters Said About Our Democracy

Voters put a check on President Trump, are seeking balance in our democratic process, and were willing to stand in unnecessarily long lines to send a message. Where voters could cast a ballot to strengthen democracy, they did. With a record turnout, democracy won in many ways in 2018. Now voters must stay engaged to improve infrastructure and hold leaders accountable if they don't work to resolve these issues.

Supreme Court Rejects Appeal of DC Circuit Decision Upholding Net Neutrality Rules

Today, the United States Supreme Court rejected an appeal from the telecommunications industry seeking to vacate the D.C. Circuit’s 2016 decision to uphold the FCC’s 2015 net neutrality rules. The Supreme Court also declined to remove the precedential value of the D.C. Circuit’s 2016 opinion. The FCC under Chairman Ajit Pai repealed its 2015 net neutrality rules but monopoly cable and telephone companies also wanted the 2016 D.C. Circuit decision upholding the rules wiped from the record.

Common Cause asks SCOTUS to Affirm Rucho North Carolina Redistricting Ruling 

Common Cause today filed a motion to affirm Common Cause v. Rucho, asking the U.S. Supreme Court to agree with a trial court ruling that North Carolina’s congressional map is an illegal partisan gerrymander. If the Supreme Court decides to hear Common Cause v. Rucho, it could result in the first ever decision by the high court stating that partisan gerrymandering violates the U.S. Constitution.

Ohio Voters Win in Federal Court

Today, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals returned a ruling that empowers more Ohioans to make their voices heard at the ballot box. The ruling addresses the voters who were aggressively purged from the voter rolls, granting them the right to vote provisionally and have their ballots counted. This ruling will give more Ohioans an opportunity to help chart the course for our state in the future. With so much at stake in this year’s election, I’m heartened knowing that more eligible voters will have the option to take part in our democracy.
