For Immediate Release Supreme Court Refuses to Block Order for Redrawing of NC Congressional Districts

Statement by North Carolina Coalition for Lobbying and Government Reform

Posted on February 20, 2016


Redistricting

For many years, Democrats drew congressional boundaries in North Carolina that produced chaotic court fights. Now, it's Republican versions that cannot survive court reviews.

We are saddened by this process, which puts raw politics over the people.

We promise to redouble our efforts to bring about methods for deciding political boundaries that are fair, impartial and can restore confidence in our state's elections.
We ask lawmakers of both parties to join us in developing a bipartisan solution. 

For more information, contact Jane Pinsky at 304 572 3269 for comment Saturday and Sunday or text her at 919 271 0630.

Common Cause is a nonpartisan grassroots organization dedicated to upholding the core values of American democracy. We work to create open, honest, and accountable government that serves the public interest; promote equal rights, opportunity, and representation for all; and empower all people to make their voices heard in the political process.
