Neighbors on Call's Weekly Policy Update for 5/24/21


Fair Representation


  • On Wednesday lawmakers in the NC Senate advanced a bill that would allow cities and towns to delay their council elections until spring of 2022 if districts can’t be redrawn in time for November 2021 elections. SB 722 responds to the delay in census data that may make it impossible to complete redistricting in time to hold elections at the usual time. Not all municipalities would delay elections if the bill passes since some do not create districts based on population, but those that do would be required to hold public hearings before delaying their election.
