The Libertarian Party of North Carolina has joined a coalition to end gerrymandering in the state.

North Carolinians to End Gerrymandering Now is led by former Charlotte Mayor Richard Vinroot, a Republican, and former Raleigh Mayor Charles Meeker, a Democrat. The coalition will work to bring a nonpartisan redistricting process to North Carolina.

“The Libertarian Party is pleased to join this multi-partisan effort,” said LPNC Chair J.J. Summerell. “Libertarians believe voters should choose their legislators, not the other way around.”

During its annual state convention in April the party adopted a platform plank calling for an independent, nonpartisan redistricting process.

The coalition is an effort of the North Carolina Coalition for Lobbying and Government Reform, a nonpartisan group of citizens and organizations across the state.

North Carolinians who want to join the campaign to get a nonpartisan, data-driven redistricting system in our state can go to endgerrymanderingnow.org to sign up. To learn more, call 919-833-0092 or email j.pinsky@nclobbyreform.org.

Call Your Mayor

The End Gerrymandering Coalition is taking the fight from the General Assembly to towns and cities across the state. They've issued a call to action, asking people to call their mayor to let them know they support ending gerrymandering.

Call your mayor today, ask for their support, and ask them to let Mayors Vinroot and Meeker know they will join the effort by calling 919-833-0092.
