Fight for Fair Maps!  Keep Communities Together!

The redistricting process has been held behind closed doors allowing politicians to decide their voters by splitting up our communities, putting communities together with different concerns and needs causing a split in our voting power and creating districts and maps that do not represent us and where we live.

Call your legislator today: in support of keeping our communities together and creating a redistricting process that is fair and transparent.

In addition, the committee announced some of their upcoming meetings.

  • Monday, August 9, at 3:00 PM: the joint NC House/Senate Redistricting Committee will meet to discuss the criteria they will use for this year’s redistricting.
  • Tuesday, August 10, at 8:30 AM – 9:30 AM: the joint NC House/Senate Redistricting Committee will meet to accept in-person comments from the public regarding redistricting criteria.

Redistricting criteria is the set of rules and guidelines legislators will use for drawing the districts.  Examples of good redistricting criteria include prohibiting the use of political data, keeping communities of interest (cities, neighborhoods, universities) together, and not protecting incumbents.

This is the letter Common Cause NC, in coordination with a coalition of NC voting rights organizations, sent to political party leaders and chairs of the redistricting committees in the North Carolina state legislature. We are calling for a fair and transparent process that allows for meaningful public comment. You can learn more about the letter here.
