Legislative redistricting impacts: WRAL provides visual explainer

Redistricting in North Carolina is a tangled web that even experts often have a difficult time unraveling.

WRAL’s Tyler Dukes is trying to make things a little clearer for North Carolina voters via a map that shows exactly how their districts have been affected by redistricting.

“Lawsuits have overturned both congressional and state legislative lines on constitutional grounds,” the article states. “But only legislative districts will be different for the 2018 midterms, when every one of the General Assembly’s 170 members will be up for re-election.”

The map highlights the before and after of redistricting in the House and Senate. North Carolinians can enter their exact address to see how their specific districts have changed and who their representatives are. Check it out here.
