|Moore v. Harper|
|Court||Supreme Court of the United States|
|Date decided||June 27, 2023|
|Appealed from||North Carolina Supreme Court|
After the 2020 Census in which North Carolina gained a member in the House of Representatives, North Carolina state legislatures re-districted the state.
Under the U.S. Constitution, does the state legislative body, independent of any constraints by state courts or other laws, have sole authority to regulate federal elections?
The independent state legislature doctrine (ISL) is invalid.
The US Constitution’s elections clause stipulates that federal elections “shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature.” CNN, 06-27-2023
