REDISTRICTING IN NORTH CAROLINA

After the Republicans gerrymandered North Carolina (again), the State Courts stepped in and agreed to new maps for the Congressional District, the NC Senate and the NC House. These maps survived a GOP appeal to the US Supreme Court and are now in place for the 2022 election cycle. 

The biggest change for Henderson County is that several Precincts have changed their NC House district (between 113 and 117).
