Note: All the following maps were made by my resident GIS specialist, Jason Baker. Use the checkboxes to toggle the display of old/new districts.
The events in state politics over the last two weeks have served as a reminder that election season is now here. Candidate filing for the May primary starts today. This will also be the first election to use the newly drawn maps for the NC House, NC Senate, and US House districts. These maps alter (rather drastically, in some cases) how Orange County is represented at the state and federal level, so I thought it would be helpful to provide a summary of the changes in each district.
UNC Young Democrats is hosting Rep. David Price who will give a short lecture followed by a question and answer segment. This event is open to the public.

Just received this email:
Because your support has been so important to me, I wanted you to hear from me that I will not seek another term in Congress.
Serving in Congress has been a remarkable opportunity. Thank you.
I knew Republicans in the legislature would
dismantle the district that I have represented for the last decade, and
they did. The thirteenth district was split six ways. I also knew that
they would create one packed Democratic district in the Triangle, so
that all the surrounding districts would be Republican, and they did. I
knew that both David Price and I would both reside in that district, and
we do. And I knew that the district would include the neighborhoods
that we have each looked to for our support, and it does.
Ask them yourself! US Rep David Price (D) & BJ Lawson (R)
debate the issues at a candidates' forum co-sponsored by the Independent Weekly & BullCityRising.com. Public may submit questions to the candidates at the event or in advance by e-mailing email@example.com.

I remember the disappointing results in key elections in 1993, when Democrats, fresh off a tremendous Presidential victory in 1992 became complacent and Republican activists got upset and activated. New Jersey’s incumbent Democratic Governor, Jim Florio was knocked out of office. That same year, Republicans seized control of the Virginia Governor’s Mansion, bringing us George “Macaca” Allen.
