On June 28, 2006, the U.S. Supreme Court declared that the Texas legislature's redistricting plan violated the Voting Rights Act in the case of Texas's 23rd congressional district. As a result, on August 4, 2006, a three-judge panel announced replacement district boundaries for 2006 election for the 23rd district, which affected the boundaries of the 15th, 21st, 25th and 28th districts.
On election day in November, these five districts had open primaries, or a "jungle primary"; any candidate to receive more than 50% of the vote wins the seat. Otherwise, a runoff election in December will decide the seat.
Cuellar retained his seat in the 28th district.
