What's happening in North Carolina:
Voting rights have been a hot topic ever since politicians in Raleigh passed the 2013 Monster Voter Suppression law. It dramatically restricted access to the polls, including requiring a photo ID to vote. While the courts did overturn most of the law in 2016, the legislative districts themselves are in question, as a federal court ruled last year that lawmakers must redraw those racially gerrymandered districts. After the supreme court has ruled that the districts must be redrawn the NCGA dragged its feet. Today there are still areas of our state where voters are unsure what districts they live in. Where candidates are still unsure which districts they can run in. This is no accident and we will remember.
