Voting Rights & Redistricting

Nielsen Merksamer has 30 years of experience advising state and local entities on voting rights and redistricting law—a level of experience, we believe, that is unparalleled in California. In 2011-12 alone, the firm advised well over 100 public entities on all aspects of the redistricting process and state and federal voting rights law. Nielsen Merksamer also has extensive experience litigating all aspects of voting rights law, redistricting and elections law, including the federal and California Voting Rights Act. In addition to our legal knowledge and experience, our voting rights legal team has technical proficiency (unmatched among California law firms, to our knowledge) with the most up-to-date Census data and the most current GIS and mapping technology.
