Gerrymandering is Bad No Matter Who Does It

Commentary by Brian Irving

Partisan gerrymandering is bad for democracy – whether done by a legislature dominated by one party or a court dominated by another party.

The state Supreme Court’s ruling that legislative maps are unconstitutional ignores the plain language of the state constitution to serve a political end.

Travis Groo, WakeLP chair, is passionate about parents deciding the best method of education for their kids. "Every child learns differently, and at different paces," he writes in an article posted on "There is no one size fits all curriculum, unless I just haven’t discovered it yet (if you find it, please do send it my way).

LPNC to Conduct Independent Election System Source Code Review


RALEIGH (Dec. 28) – The Libertarian Party will conduct the first-ever independent review of the state’s election system software. State Chair Joseph Garcia invoked his authority under state law in a Dec. 21 letter to the State Board of Elections requesting to review and examine all source code for an electronic voting system made by vendor Election Systems & Software.

ES&S has systems in use in 93 North Carolina counties.

“This is not about litigating the 2020 election,” Garcia emphasized. “It’s about election system security. Cybersecurity experts worldwide have warned of the vulnerabilities and inconsistencies of electronic voting machines. Voter confidence in those systems has been steadily eroding. These systems must be evaluated independently and tested regularly,” he said.

Garcia appointed Dr. Duncan Buell, recently retired from the University of South Carolina Department of Computer Science and Engineering, as project lead for the code review team. Dr. Buell is also a former election official for Richland County, S.C.
