      The courts says so.

      Of course, people will always complain, but as long as there is no legal decision this is just the usual partisan complaints...

        North Carolina Can Use Gerrymandered Map In November, Court Rules



        Judges in North Carolina on Tuesday said that despite declaring the state's electoral map to be unconstitutionally gerrymandered for partisan reasons, there wasn't enough time for the map to be redrawn before midterm elections in November.

        "We further find that imposing a new schedule for North Carolina's congressional elections would, at this late juncture, unduly interfere with the State's electoral machinery and likely confuse voters and depress turnout," Judges James Wynn Jr., William Osteen Jr. and W. Earl Britt wrote in their order Tuesday.

        Gerrymandering is not unconstitutional.

          Interestingly, gerrymandering is not prohibited by the Constitution, but rather by the Voter Rights Act of 1965.

          So there is no violation of the Constitution.

          And since in the USA a person is innocent until a verdict is rendered in a court of record, no one has done anything wrong.

          This thread is now complete.
          The troll could not read behind his self-imposed ignorance wall that this thread is based on a court decision about the gerrymandering but felt the need to enlighten us with his stupid comments.
