NCDP Statement on SCOTUS Partisan Gerrymander Hearing

Raleigh – North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin released the following statement after attending oral arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court on partisan gerrymandering in North Carolina:

“Today’s arguments made it unquestionably clear that a system where politicians choose their voters instead of the other way around is inherently undemocratic and entirely unacceptable. Partisan gerrymandering increases divisive partisanship, weakens representative government, and silences the voice of the people. We must put an end to this harmful practice.”
