A nonpartisan panel of retired North Carolina justices and judges on Monday unveiled a new, but unofficial, congressional map for North Carolina to demonstrate how independent redistricting can work in the state. The new congressional map is the culmination of a four-month-long redistricting simulation launched as a joint project between Duke University and Common Cause North Carolina. Comprised of an equal number of Republicans and Democrats, the panel of 10 retired judges was led by former N.C. Supreme Court Chief Justices Rhoda Billings and Henry Frye.
