Question: How can North Carolina elect more moderate leaders?

Answer: End partisan redistricting.

The problem: North Carolina's tradition of moderate leadership is undermined by a redistricting process that creates an overwhelming majority of legislative and congressional districts that are uncontested in elections. Since 1992, nearly half of all legislative races have had just one candidate on the ballot.

Without competition, elected officials cannot be held accountable.

The solution: We need an impartial redistricting process that produces more competitive districts, rewarding problem-solving, moderate leadership that is accountable to constituents.
