North Carolina lawmakers finalize redistribution maps

North Carolina General Assembly

RALEIGH, NC (AP) – The North Carolina General Assembly has finalized maps of the state’s legislative and congressional districts that are expected to last for the next decade.

The House and Senate voted on Thursday for the lines drawn based on the 2020 census figures for the State House, State Senate and United States House delegation. Republicans would do largely well under the plans.

Democrats and their allies claim the cards contain illegal partisan and racial gerrymanders. Legal action was filed last week with more to come.

Democratic Governor Roy Cooper’s veto stamp cannot block redistribution plans.
