FILE -- A person early votes at Central Library in Madison, Wis., Oct. 14, 2016. The U.S. Supreme Court declined on June 18, 2018, to decide two challenges to partisan gerrymandering, citing technical grounds. In a case from Wisconsin, the court said plaintiffs there had not proved they had suffered the sort of direct injury to give them standing to sue. The court sent the case back to the lower courts to allow the plaintiffs to try again. (Lauren Justice/The New York Times/Copyright 2018)
