Visiting the NCGA
North Carolina has 100 counties. Our state has single-member representation so representatives or senators may represent part of a county or multiple counties depending upon the population.
Legislators gather at the North Carolina General Assembly (NCGA) to represent their constituents. The NCGA is a public building, where visitors are welcome. The building contains offices where legislators work and there is seating available in 3rd floor galleries, where the public is invited to observe both House and Senate chambers. The NCGA website contains a wealth of information to help citizens learn history, navigate correspondence with legislators, track their work, and navigate visits to the building.
