It is time for both political parties to stop the waste of time and money in trying the skew voting districts to their favor. It is confusing and tiring for the voters by not having simple, repeatable and identifiable districts.
Would it be so hard to select the most populated county in North Carolina as the basis for the first district, then programming a computer to group adjacent counties to become districts that are comparable in population? Districts would not cross county lines, but would include as many counties as needed to be comparable in population.
Political affiliations, race and gender would have zero impact in the upon the selection of voting districts.
Fair and simple, right?
Easy for citizens to determine their candidates and voting districts. Could be reviewed after each census for change.
Take the politicians out of the decisions now! Do this for the voters!
