North Carolina's congressional districts
NOTE: Several of these districts have had their boundaries changed in 2016 due to a Federal Court ruling on racial gerrymandering resulting in redistricting by the state legislature. The court ordered map shown below is correct moving forward.
North Carolina is currently divided into 13 congressional districts, each represented by a member of the United States House of Representatives. After the 2000 Census, the number of North Carolina's seats was increased from 12 to 13 due to the State's increase in population. On February 5, 2016, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ruled that the 1st and 12th districts' boundaries were unconstitutional.

The delegation has a total of 13 members, with 10 Republicans, and 3 Democrats. The reason this state is so heavily Republican is due to the massive gerrymandering effort by the Republican party in the state.
