In 2011, the North Carolina State Legislature re-drew the congressional districts based on updated population information from the 2010 census.

In redistricting, The Hill published a list of the Top Ten House Members who were helped by redistricting.[2] Ellmers ranked 2nd on the list.[2] According to the article, after 2001 redistricting by Democrats attempted to make the district more Democratic-leaning, the 2011 redistricting by Republicans took the district from a slightly Republican-leaning district to one that’s more solidly Republican.[2]
