North Carolina Has Won a Huge Victory in the Fight Against Rigged Elections | The Nation
After the high court’s decision, foes of partisan gerrymandering shifted their focus to state courts. And on Tuesday, they scored a victory that’s significant not just for North Carolina but for the many states where biased maps have compromised free and fair elections. The panel of three judges ruled unanimously in Common Cause v. Lewis that the Republican-control North Carolina General Assembly had violated the state constitution when it gerrymandered legislative maps with an eye toward thwarting serious competition for state house and senate seats. The judges order that the districts be redrawn in time for the 2020 election.
