Texas Voting Districts Change, Maps Redrawn by Federal Court

New political maps have been issued that could give Texas Democrats a greater chance at winning seats in Congress and the Legislature. That comes from the Associated Press in the midst of a lawsuit that challenges Republican-drawn maps that Democrats say gives the right wing a higher advantage. The lawsuit claims the maps drawn by the Republican-led legislature disadvantages minority group voters, therefore disadvantaging their candidates of choice.

A federal court released the new maps Thursday, which will remain valid until the lawsuit is resolved. In a separate case, the Legislature-drawn maps were thrown out after the court agreed they hurt minority representation.

Texas House District 82, under the new federally made map, has been moved back into the Panhandle. Representative Jim Landtroop holds office in this district.
