Redistricting 2021

Article One of the U.S. Constitution establishes the House of Representatives and apportions Representatives to the states based on population, with reapportionment to occur every ten years. The decennial U.S. Census determines the population of each state. After the 2020 census, Virginia has no change in Congressional representation, maintaining 11 seats in the House. 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.
