Impact of redistricting

See also: Redistricting in North Carolina

The Republican-controlled General Assembly approved final redistricting maps on July 27, 2011. Although the Department of Justice pre-cleared the maps as it is their legal responsibility to do for North Carolina under the Voting Rights Act, lawsuits followed from Democrats and community groups arguing that the maps engaged in political and racial gerrymandering, and unnecessarily split counties. The suits were later consolidated. Though the elections were given the go-ahead, and the political gerrymandering claims were dismissed, the suit remains pending.[3]

Using a method developed by Charlie Cook, Catawba College Professor Michael Bitzer calculated the political make-up of the finalized districts. Using the presidential vote in 2004 and 2008, he divided seats into "likely," "lean," and "toss-up." In the House, Bitzer found that 36 of the new districts were likely Republican wins while 30 were likely Democratic wins. In addition, he found that 37 seats leaned Republican while only six seats leaned Democrat. Overall, 11 House seats were toss-ups. In the State Senate, Bitzer identified 14 districts that were likely wins for each party. However, he identified 17 seats that leaned Republican while only two seats leaned Democrat. There were three Senate toss-ups.[4]

Qualifications

Article 2, Section 6 of the North Carolina Constitution states: Each Senator, at the time of his election, shall be not less than 25 years of age, shall be a qualified voter of the State, and shall have resided in the State as a citizen for two years and in the district for which he is chosen for one year immediately preceding his election.

Impact of redistricting

See also: Redistricting in North Carolina and North Carolina Game Changers

If the GOP-approved map withstands legal scrutiny, political experts have estimated that there could be as many as 27 or 28 reliably safe Republican seats in the Senate.[5]
