Redistricting decision looms

Posted by on Mon, Oct 31, 2011 at 10:15 AM

Tomorrow is the scheduled day for the First Out for redistricting plans submitted for North Carolina's congressional and state legislature districts.

First Out is explained by the Justice Department thusly:

The date appearing under the heading "First Out" is the initial date by which the Attorney General must make his determination or inform the jurisdiction that the date will be modified.

It's still possible DoJ will seek an extension, but it's very likely we'll see something very soon. The department tends to publish its rulings on a Monday, so maybe today, maybe next Monday.
This DoJ response will begin the long process of establishing the final districts in the state.

So, plenty to chew on. Here we go.
