Our elections should be free, fair, and secure.

But each decade, when it’s time to draw new districts, politicians get away with gerrymandering: working behind closed doors to draw districts that make it easier for them and their party to be reelected. It’s a conflict of interest and it undermines the integrity of our elections.

North Carolina has a long history of gerrymandering. Last cycle, two sets of maps were struck down by state and federal courts for favoring one party over the other and showing racial bias. A three-judge panel stated the state legislative maps did not 'permit voters to freely choose their representative.'

Whether it’s dividing communities of color to diminish the influence of their votes, or stacking the deck to ensure incumbents never have to run a tough reelection campaign again, gerrymandering is unethical and un-American.

Our voices matter, but we need our politicians to act now to ensure our votes do too. Send a message to the North Carolina Redistricting Committees demanding they draw fair maps and join the campaign to fight gerrymandering today.
