In a ruling released Friday, a three-judge panel from the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that election maps the state legislature redrew in 2013 and 2015 for the Wake County school board and Board of Commissioners are unconstitutional. The Court found  the maps gave an unfair advantage to voters in suburban districts.
The 2-1 court decision ordered the federal trial judge to prohibit use of the new maps that were to be used in November’s election. The decision affects all nine school board seats and two newly created regional Board of Commissioners seats that were scheduled to be on the Nov. 8 ballot.

Raleigh - The U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether North Carolina lawmakers relied too much on race when they drew new congressional districts five years ago.
In the order, the court pointed out the split between the federal district court in Greensboro, which found the districts unconstitutional, and the North Carolina Supreme Court which upheld the lines.
A similar case is pending before a different three-judge panel, in which plaintiffs have asked the court to find that legislators relied too heavily on race when they drew North Carolina state legislative districts.
