NCDP Statement on North Carolina Supreme Court Decision To Strike Down Maps

Following the North Carolina State Supreme Court’s decision to strike down unconstitutional, partisanly gerrymandered maps, NCDP Chair Bobbie Richardson released this statement:

“Today’s ruling by the North Carolina Supreme Court is a win for voters and for democracy. This is a critical and momentous step towards maps that protect the fundamental right to vote. After Republicans lied about their commitment to fairness and cheated using secret concept maps, today’s decision should reassure voters that stealing political power will not be tolerated. As Democrats we remain committed to ensuring North Carolinians can make their voice heard.”
