Under the North Carolina Constitution, after every decennial census, the N.C. General Assembly draws districts from which representatives and senators are elected. This process is known as redistricting. Members of the United States House of Representatives, the North Carolina Senate, and the North Carolina House of Representatives are elected by district. Some local officials are also elected by district.
Redistricting maintains equal representation of every district by accounting for population shifts during the previous decade.
