222 Voters in May Primary Received Wrong Ballot in NC

Today Plaintiffs in the North Carolina statewide redistricting case filed a motion for summary judgment, asking the court to hold that North Carolina’s House, Senate and Congressional redistricting plans are unconstitutional. As part of the research for that motion, plaintiffs’ found that 2056 voters in the state had been assigned to the wrong district in a sampling of 6 of North Carolina’s 100 Counties. 715 of those voters actually voted in the primary and 222 of them received the wrong ballot. Plaintiffs are asking for a hearing in mid-November. Any change in the maps won’t take effect until the 2014 elections, but the wrongly assigned voters could be corrected in time for the November 2012 general election. Attached below are the Motion and a one-page summary of the filings.
