CHARLOTTE, N.C. - There's a push to change the way voting districts are drawn in North Carolina.
Current law allows whatever party is in control of the legislature to redraw voting districts every 10 years.
In 2010, that created a huge advantage for Republicans.
Former Mayor Richard Vinroot, a Republican, held a news conference Thursday to suggest a new commission for redistricting – two days after voters went to the polls.
Eyewitness News reporter Jim Bradley was at that conference and will have more details on Vinroot’s proposal Thursday at 5 p.m.
