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.
You can learn more about redistricting in North Carolina at the General Assembly’s Legislative and Congressional Redistricting webpage. It includes current and historical information about the congressional and state legislative maps used in North Carolina for the past 30 years. It also includes maps, shapefiles, and statistics about the districts.
In October 2023, the General Assembly approved new maps for the State House (Session Law 2023-149), State Senate (Session Law 2023-146), and North Carolina’s 14 congressional districts (Session Law 2023-145) for use in the 2024 elections.
The State Board of Elections will work with the 100 county boards of elections to ensure that voters are placed in the correct districts for voting in 2024. However, these changes to voters’ districts cannot be made by county board staff until after the November 7 municipal elections are finalized. These geocoding changes will take place starting in mid to late November, ahead of candidate filing for 2024, which begins December 4.
