Kentucky Lantern: Kentucky Supreme Court must weigh constitutionality of partisan gerrymanders
Arguments heard in lawsuit that could affect elections in 2024 and 2026
By McKENNA HORSLEY
FRANKFORT — The Kentucky Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday about whether Republican-drawn U.S. and Kentucky House districts are gerrymandered and if that matters under the state constitution.
Kentucky Democrats filed the lawsuit after the Republican supermajority in the General Assembly adopted the maps last year. Attorneys for the Democrats and the Commonwealth of Kentucky argued before Kentucky’s seven justices, who will later make a ruling on the lawsuit.
