Redistricting Reform

Redistricting Reform Action Team is the Charlotte Mecklenburg League’s conduit to Fair Districts NC, a statewide League education and mobilization campaign. The 2020 Census is now complete, but Covid-19 has delayed delivery of the results to President Biden. In mid to late spring, North Carolina population data will arrive at the General Assembly and the majority party will begin drawing this decade’s maps - for the U.S. House, N.C. Senate, and N.C. House. Our LWV/Fair Districts’ focus is:

  1. Lobby for the fairest maps this spring, and
  2. work toward a constitutional amendment that establishes a bi-partisan citizens’ committee responsible for all future map-drawing. Once achieved, gerrymandering in North Carolina will end and democracy will have room to flourish.

The Fair Districts NC approach is based on:

  • “5 principles of reasonable redistricting reform” specifically recommending:
  • how commissioners would be selected,
  • how the commission would work, and
  • what rules it would follow in drawing election district maps.

Fair Districts NC is a campaign rather than a formal organization. All of its programs are strictly nonpartisan. It neither advocates for nor opposes any candidate for public office or party.

The League of Women Voters of North Carolina leads the effort to build and manage Fair Districts NC and its activities, and is supported in part by People-Powered Fair Maps ™, a program of the League of Women Voters of the United States, and the LWVUS Education Fund.
