US Supreme Court action a clear sign North Carolina needs a new redistricting process

Today’s US Supreme Court action, sending the lawsuit over North Carolina’s 2011redistricting back to the

North Carolina Supreme Court, sends a clear signal that North Carolina needs a new redistricting process.

There have been about thirty judicial interventions in North Carolina redistricting in the last 35 years.

“It is time for North Carolina to have a nonpartisan system that creates fair,impartial districts. It is also

time for North Carolina to have a redistricting system that does not require court involvement, special

sessions of the North Carolina General Assembly, and elections to be delayed. All of these have

happened in the last three decades“ said Jane Pinsky, Driector of the North Carolina Coalition for Lobbying

and Government Reform.

Pinsky continued“ We urge the North Carolina General Assembly to take action on legislation that would create a

nonpartisan system like the one in House Bill 92, Nonpartisan Redistricting, based on legislation passed by

the North Carolina House in the past. It is time to end this long saga and move forward.”

impartial nonpartisan redistricting system in North Carolina since 2006. The Coalition works to make
