The maps shown below are the ones that will be used in the 2024 general election. For the maps used for the 2022 election, follow these links: House / Senate.

Across all 120 State House and 50 State Senate elections in North Carolina, only 25 were decided by 10 points or fewer in the 2022 election: 17 races in the House, and 8 in the Senate. This means that 85% of all the seats in the state legislature were decided by more than 10 points, and thus not typically considered competitive.
This is partly due to “political geography” – the tendency of all voters to live in areas where people vote like they do. But it is also due to political gerrymandering engineered to deliver a Republican majority.
