The Sentinel reported last week that because of North Carolina’s redistricting laws, Dare County is prohibited from redistricting but readers wanted to know if that meant that the at-large seat couldn’t be assigned to a particular district.

Joyce’s response: That sort of change can be done at the county level, but it requires a referendum. The relevant statutes are GS 153A-58 through -64. Click the link for the details at the Outer Banks Sentinel
