Texas Redistricting

Webb County has been reunited into one congressional district. The reunion comes after a three-judge federal panel decision.

The U-S Supreme Court had ordered redrawing District 23. The high court had said the redistricting unfairly diluted Hispanic voting strength.

Five Texas congressional districts are affected by the revision--15, 21, 23, 25 and 28. Under the new map, all incumbents will remain and run in their current districts. The redrawn seats are now open to anyone who wants to run.

Candidates have until August 25th to file.
