Congressman Nickel Announces “Fair Maps for North Carolina” Tour

  • FairMapsTour
Congressman Wiley Nickel (NC-13) is pleased to announce the “Fair Maps for North Carolina” tour. During the tour, Congressman Nickel will travel throughout the state to meet with elected officials, community leaders, and students to advocate for fair maps and ending partisan gerrymandering.

Nickel will start the “Fair Maps for North Carolina” tour in Greensboro (2/22) and Charlotte (2/23), with subsequent stops in Greenville, Wilmington, Winston-Salem, Asheville, Rocky Mount, Roanoke Rapids, and additional stops to be announced at a later date. During the tour, Nickel will present comprehensive data and insight on North Carolina’s egregious redistricting process and recent history of Republicans in the General Assembly enacting self-serving, highly partisan state and congressional maps that go against the will of voters. 

In Congress, Nickel is pushing for passage of the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the Freedom to Vote Act, federal legislation to end partisan gerrymandering, expand voting by mail, protect early voting, help get big money out of our elections, support election integrity, and make reforms to improve ballot access. Additionally, Nickel helped introduce the Redistricting Transparency and Accountability Act with members of the North Carolina delegation to establish transparency and accountability requirements for congressional redistricting processes.

“While my name won't be on the ballot this year, I want people to know that I'm not giving up or going out quietly in the fight for maps or ending partisan gerrymandering on the federal level,” said Congressman Wiley Nickel. “I look forward to engaging with elected officials, community leaders, and students across the state on the Fair Maps for North Carolina tour because democracy is on the line, and North Carolina is worth fighting for. I’ll continue to fight with every ounce of my energy for fair maps, an end to partisan gerrymandering, and to protect the right to vote for every single North Carolinian.”
