State of North Carolina

North Carolina Congressional Partisan Gerrymandering

Harper v. Lewis

Lawsuit filed on behalf of individual voters challenging North Carolina’s congressional maps as improper partisan gerrymanders. The court issued a preliminary injunction, stating that the state could not proceed with House primary elections under the original congressional maps. Legislators redrew the congressional maps and the state court upheld them in time for candidates to file for the 2020 elections.
