The map above shows North Carolina's Third Congressional District from 2011-2015 spanning all or part of 22 coastal counties from the Virginia line down to Wilmington, and portions reaching inland to encompass portions of Greene, Lenoir, Martin, and Pitt Counties. Nine counties are entirely located within the Third District, while 13 others are split, with the First and/or Seventh District.

*In 2016, these maps were declared unconstitutional by a Federal Court, who instructed the NC General Assembly to redraw the maps again. The new map greatly reduced the number of split counties, bringing our number down to 17. We lost New Hanover and Pender to the 7th, and lost Gates, Martin, and Washington to the 1st. All other split counties except for Pitt were now brought entirely within the 3rd District.

The new map is still under review, but is currently slated for use in 2016 elections, with Congressional filing to be held in March and Primaries to be held in June. For 2016 District Conventions and DNC Delegate Selection Process, we will still be operating under the 2011-2015 Districts as outlined in the Delegate Selection Plan. At what point the NCDP will realign district organization to the new districts is yet to be announced, but may occur at the State Convention to be held in June. We will keep you informed once an announcement is made.

Counties listed above in italics were a part of the 3rd District until the 2011 redistricting redrew the lines.
