An example of the kind of congressional districts that I would like to see...keeping in mind never to break up a county when forming any kind of electoral district.

Seriously, though. My solution to gerrymandering is as follows:

Rule #1: Don't break county lines to form a district.

North Carolina has 13 districts and 100 counties.

That leaves 13 districts with 7 counties each and 9 counties left over. That means 9 of the 13 congressional districts would have 8 instead of 7 counties.

Form the districts so that the districts wit the least population have the most counties.

This is my favorite photo from today's special meeting of the Macon County Board of Elections to hear a challenge to the candidacy of County Commissioner Ron Haven. The challenge ultimately failed. Pictured (L-R) are Attorney Orville Coward, Macon County Commissioner Ron Haven and Charles "Scoon" Nichols, who brought the challenge.
