Fifth Circuit Rejects LULAC One Person, One Vote Argument, Finding Water District in Texas a Special Purpose District Not Subject to the Rule

Here is the opinion in LULAC v. EAA.

I find Judge Higgenbotham’s argument in concurrence, where he says no one is disenfranchised, and it is just about the weighting of votes, to be curious. As I told my class of 20 students, if we all get to vote on the final exam format, and you each get one vote and I get 50, would it be fair to call you “disenfranchised” if you still have a formal vote?
