NC for Fair Elections

This website serves as a means for the public to track litigation brought by the Plaintiffs to ensure the citizens of North Carolina their right to, not just frequent and free elections, but fair elections.  Fairness, as a fundamental principle of a democratic government, is a right guaranteed by the North Carolina Constitution.

Plaintiffs, individually, and on behalf of all the citizens of North Carolina contend that they are guaranteed “fair” elections or else the other constitutional guarantees are of little or no value and that the elections in specific districts as set forth in the Complaint violated their constitutional right to fair elections.  Article I, Section 36 of the North Carolina Constitution provides “Other rights of the people,” stating that “[t]he enumeration of rights in this Article shall not be construed to impair or deny others retained by the people.” This guarantee first adopted by North Carolina’s 1868 Constitution is modeled on the Ninth Amendment in the U.S. Bill of Rights. The right to “fair” elections is an unenumerated right reserved by the people and fundamental to the very concept of elections and the underpinnings of democracy.
