When in power, both NC Republicans and Democrats have used that power to draw districts that favor them and that do not reflect the NC population.  This process leads to unfair elections, extreme partisan politics and discourages voters.  It must end.

House Bill 200 would end gerrymandering in North Carolina by establishing a nonpartisan system for drawing the state's congressional and legislative voting maps.  The bill has 39 bipartisan co-sponsors in the NC House and is supported by an overwhelming majority of North Carolina voters.  But since it was introduced in February, House Bill 200 has not been given a vote or even a hearing in the NC House Rules Committee.

Common Cause has organized a  People's Hearing for House Bill 200 at the NC Legislature in Raleigh on Monday, June 5, from 4:00-6:00 p.m.  The hearing will give North Carolina citizens the opportunity to voice their support for passage of HB200 and fair voting maps. 
Come and express your discontent with the status quo.  You can learn more here.
