North Carolina in the 2000s

North Carolina State Senate

2003-2004

The First Session of this General Assembly met from January 29th to August 27th in 2003. The Second Session met from May 10th to July 18th in 2004. An Extra Session was convened from November 24th to November 25th in 2003. A Second Extra Session was convened from December 9th to December 10th in 2003. A Third Extra Session was convened on November 4, 2004 (one day).

The previous NC General Assembly reapportioned the State Senate districts based upon the 2000 U.S. Census, effective this term. The number of Senate districts was increased from forty-two (42) to fifty (50).

The number of Senators remained at fifty (50) - therefore, each district now had only one (1) senator allocated.

It is apparent that the districts described below were only temporary for this General Assembly only, and no map has yet been found to show them. In the next General Assembly, the districts changed slightly to line up with the map provided and attached thereto.
