RALEIGH – The redrawing of congressional districts in response to a judicial decree continues in earnest at the N.C. General Assembly with an emphasis on avoiding any delays to primary elections. After days of tweaking and re-tweaking maps (districts have to be with in ONE VOTER of the magic number, and you can only add and subtract whole census blocks), the public will have an opportunity for input on the redistricting process.
The hearing is for tomorrow November 13 at 10am in the Legislative Office Building in Raleigh. You can Request To Speak
here if you have a bone to pick about the redistricting process. Usually the activists on the Left are keen to show up and be loud about whatever grievance de jure is on the agenda, so balancing that out to ensure a textbook version of fairness in maps (versus Demcrats’ definition) is important.
If you want to check in on the current map tweaks and who’s making them, go here for the redistricting live stream.
