NC'S 10th and 11th Districts.
Rutherford County has a total population of 66,741 with 12,414 registered Democrats, 16,723 Republicans, and 13,143 Unaffiliateds.
Our representatives to the NC House and Senate are from different and overlapping districts, the US Senators and the state officers are all statewide, and there is a bewildering array of judicial and other districts we have to deal with as well.
But our US Congressman is a big deal, and the constitutional requirements for redistricting make their districts political footballs every 10 years in a way that no other office is.
In 2022 sections of Rutherford county were assigned to two different Congressional Districts.
As shown on the map below, the western part of the county is now in DISTRICT 11, including:
Camp Crk- Mt. Vernon, Chimney Rock, Gilkey-Morgan Green Hill and Rutherfordton (part of) and Union Mills.
The eastern part of the county is now in DISTRICT 10, including: Bostic-Sunshine, Caroleen, Cliffside, Danieltown-Sulphur Springs, Duncan Crk-Golden Valley Ellenboro
Forest City, Haynes Rutherfordton (part of ), Sandy Mush and Spindale.
