'Plaintiffs in North Carolina say Republicans drew maps ‘impervious to the will of the voters’ that will be used in 2020.By sidelining itself in the fight over partisan gerrymandering, however, the supreme court did not end the fight. Instead it has moved to the states, including back to North Carolina, where Lewis and fellow Republican legislators are currently on trial for allegedly, by manipulating the maps, violating citizens’ rights to a free and fair vote.A ruling against the Republicans in North Carolina, analysts say, could be galvanizing, setting off a wave of gerrymandering challenges in other states. But the stakes in North Carolina are special.'

Senate Republicans have twice blocked legislation aimed at strengthening US election security in the 24 hours since the former special counsel Robert Mueller warned that Russian election interference was happening "as we sit here".

Since Mueller left the witness stand on Wednesday, Republican senators have blocked a House-backed bill and a separate trio of bills meant to beef up US election security.

The Senate Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer of New York, accused Republicans of having "buried commonsense election security bills in their legislative graveyard". He pledged to keep putting forward requests to vote on legislation, including a House-passed bill that would authorize $775m in grants over the next two years to help states secure their voting systems.
