FIGHTING FOR DEMOCRACY,
ONE ACTION AT A TIME.
HAVE A FEW MINUTES?
Gov. Roy Cooper did his part to protect an impartial judiciary by vetoing House Bill 100, rejecting legislation that would make elections for our state’s trial judges into million-dollar partisan affairs. But we’re not done. Now the bill heads back to the General Assembly where lawmakers will consider whether to override the governor’s veto. If they do, they’ll effectively politicize all of North Carolina’s judicial races and set the stage for a host of other bills waging war on the separation of powers and the neutrality of our court system. We can’t let that happen. Tell your lawmakers to sustain the governor’s veto of House Bill 100 and help stop judicial partisanship in North Carolina.
In an effort to make North Carolina’s elections fair, reduce political divides, and stop racial gerrymandering (and the endless litigation that follows), Democracy North Carolina joins our coalition partners to support legislation that establishes an independent commission to create voting districts in a fair and open process. Join us in calling for our lawmakers to support independent redistricting reform ~ we’ll deliver the message.
