North Carolina's redistricting process allows our congressional and legislative voting maps to be drawn by whichever party controls the legislature.
The result: gerrymandered districts that unfairly favor one party or the other, which in turn leads to a lack of competition in our elections and no real voice for voters at the ballot box.
Both parties have indulged in gerrymandering to benefit their own side, and our democracy has suffered for it. It's time for real reform.
Like the overwhelming majority of North Carolinians, we believe that voting maps should be drawn in a fair and impartial way that protects the freedom of voters to hold their government accountable and to have a say in who represents them.
