Despite overwhelming support for independent redistricting, for far too long North Carolina’s voting maps have been drawn behind closed doors to protect partisan interests.
Now, pro-democracy lawmakers in the N.C. Senate have introduced a redistricting reform bill that would finally give North Carolina a “Citizens Redistricting Commission.”
Senate Bill 673 would provide the “gold standard” for citizen-led independent redistricting, creating an independent redistricting commission for map-making that would emphasize public input and transparency, and take away the incentive to rig maps regardless of who’s in power.
This legislation is the best choice yet for reining in North Carolina’s politicians, who have used the current redistricting process to pick their voters.
