NC General Assembly holding public hearing on state and congressional redistricting on Wednesday at UNCW

North Carolina General Assembly

The public hearing is one of 13 around the state — one in each of North Carolina's current congressional districts — held by the North Carolina Senate and House Redistricting Committee.

The event allows members of the public to share their thoughts and concerns about the redistricting process — residents can also submit their concerns online.

Congressional redistricting will be based on new data from the 2020 census — North Carolina will get another seat in congress and, while it's not clear exactly how the 14th district will be arranged, it's unlikely to impact the Wilmington area.

The state will also redraw legislative lines, a contentious process in the past.

Lot M, located at Riegel Road and Price Drive, is the official visitor parking lot.
