Take the politics out of NC redistricting
Two maps appear above. The current one is a major problem. The proposed one is a simple solution.
The current map of North Carolina’s congressional districts is the 2011 handiwork of the Republican-controlled General Assembly. It is a portrait of gerrymandering. As can be seen by the maps of the 1st and the 12th districts, district lines were contorted to generate the maximum number of districts that would favor Republican candidates.
