The N.C. House of Representatives may change hands for the first time in a decade, due to redrawn legislative maps and tight races in key districts.

With less than a week till the end of voting, residents in key North Carolina counties are heading to the polls to determine who will take control of the state’s House of Representatives. Though Republicans currently hold a majority in the House, Democrats would need to secure just six more seats to flip power in their favor.

With new redistricted maps in play this year, election outcomes may be more unpredictable. WUNC Capitol Bureau Chief and host of the WUNC Politics Podcast Jeff Tiberii joins host Frank Stasio to discuss the impact of college voting, high-profile endorsements, and updated districting maps on potential race outcomes.
