Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The problem is that constituency drawing, voter registration and the voting process itself is largely controlled at local level by often partisan officials and the GOP know this is their own way to hold back the tide of demographic change. As these are Federal Level elections, you would have thought Congress itself could prescribe the rules by which elections are conducted, but I am unclear as to what extent this would be seen as interfering with "states rights". As in all things it would probably require a large Dem majority in Congress and on the SCOTUS to push any major reform through.
