NCDP Statement on Historic Decision Declaring GOP Partisan Gerrymandering Unconstitutional

Raleigh – NCDP Chairman Wayne Goodwin released the following statement after a three-judge panel ruled that Republicans’ partisan gerrymandered maps violate the state constitution and must be redrawn:

“From targeting people based on their race to dividing them based on their political beliefs, Republicans for a decade have rigged our state and silenced voters to cling desperately onto power. North Carolina Democrats will never stop advocating for people’s right to make their voices heard at the ballot box, and we look forward to taking back control of the General Assembly using fair maps next November.”
