REDISTRICTING VICTORY FOR THE CITIZENS OF NORTH CAROLINA
The League of Women Voters of NC has won a victory for the citizens of North Carolina! The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the 2011 redistricting plan that packed NC legislative and US Congressional districts based on race must be reconsidered by the NC Supreme Court in light of the recent ruling in the Alabama redistricting case.
The League has a long-standing position in support of districts that are compact, convenient, and contiguous; that reflect a community of interest; and that comply with the National Voting Rights Acts. Furthermore, the responsibility for redistricting should reside with an independent agency that is not beholden to a political party. In addition, the League supports an open, transparent redistricting process that allows for citizen input.
NC VOTING RIGHTS IN PERIL!
The League continues to fight against the destructive effects of voter suppression while also urging full compliance with and protection of important federal laws like the National Voter Registration Act and the Voting Rights Act.
