NC Congress, state House remaps clear 1 legislative chamber

Nov 2, 2021

Redistricting plans that enlarge North Carolina’s congressional delegation and retool the state House seats have now each cleared one legislative chamber. The House voted along party lines Tuesday for a map that redraws the chamber’s 120 districts, which are based on population changes recorded in the 2020 census. If they withstand litigation, the new boundaries should keep Republicans in a good position to retain the majority they've held since 2011. The full Senate also approved a new congressional plan that would seat 14 U.S. House members from the state. Democrats and outside analysis predict that Republicans could win at least 10 of those seats.
