NEW: Here's my completed draft of how I'd redraw North Carolina's state House districts to fix the GOP's illegal gerrymandering. You can also find an interactive version & further data analysis of the map on @PlanScore at the link. #NCpol #NCGA  https://planscore.org/plan.html?20190915T212804.390528427Z

Here's how I think the North Carolina state House map proposal from my earlier tweet would have turned out in 2018. Democrats either force a 60-60 tie or they win up to a 65-55 majority. The GOP's gerrymander by contrast resulted in a 65-55 GOP majority. #NCpol #NCGA

And here's how I think the North Carolina state Senate district proposal from my earlier tweet would have turned out in 2018. Democrats would have come one seat shy of a 25-25 tie (the Republican lieutenant governor would break ties) & two seats shy of a majority #NCpol #NCGA
