Redistricting 2021

Article One of the United States Constitution establishes the United States House of Representatives and apportions Representatives to the states based on population, with reapportionment occurring every ten years. The decennial United States census determines the population of each state. After the 2020 census Virginia has no change in Congressional representation, maintaining 11 Congressional seats. The Virginia Constitution Article II. Section 6 outlines redistricting, that was amended by voters November 3, 2020 despite recommendations against adoption of the redistricting commission by Democratic leadership.
