“Today’s decision is a win for democracy. The Supreme Court declined to disturb the lower court’s ruling that 11 Virginia legislative districts were drawn so as to “pack” African-American voters into a small number of districts, thus diminishing their voting strength across the state.

This is a victory for voting rights, and we applaud it,” Derrick Johnson, NAACP President and CEO
