Judge wants to know when he can get new Wake County election maps

U.S. Chief District Court Judge James C. Dever III has scheduled a hearing Tuesday to discuss how to carry out an appellate ruling that declared the state legislature’s maps for Wake County Board of Commissioners and school board to be unconstitutional. Dever wants to know when the State Board of Elections can submit new districts and when state legislative leaders can provide “illustrative maps.”
