The above video stream will become active shortly before 3pm...


I've replaced the video player with an audio recording of the entire hearing. 




Locations of public hearings on redistricting in North Carolina today


Today there will be a public hearing on the Congressional redistricting maps released on June 30, 2011. [see my coverage] The calendar is below and I will be recording audio of this public hearing and will provide a link (when it becomes available) to the live video feed. 


This is an unprecedented event in the history of North Carolina politics, the previous redrawn maps, when the Democrats were in charge, were never released until hours before voting on them was to take place and no public comment was taken. During this cycle, there have been over a dozen public hearing locations and anyone who wished to speak has been allowed to sign up.
