With the 2018 midterm elections nearing and a gerrymandering case under review in the U.S. Supreme Court, partisan gerrymandering is a hot topic right now. It is also an important issue for Pennsylvanians, whose voting districts are considered some of the most gerrymandered in the country. This issue is on trial in the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg in the case of League of Women Voters v. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
The trial is open to the public. It begins on December 11, and is expected to be completed on December 15. It could potentially take longer, and because of the time urgency, there may be days when it runs beyond normal court hours.
