Redrawn Congressional Districts Highlights Importance Of Voting

  • Post category:News

In late 2021, there had been a total overhaul of Virginia and their political lines. In case you’re not sure where that might be, it involves a whole bunch of redistricting and shifting of voters into brand new congressional and state laegislative districts.

This has been the trend lately in the United States, as Virginia has had to redraw political boundaries with brand new census data. It was only last December that the Supreme Court had finalized the state’s redistricting process for all 11 of the congressional districts for the 2022 midterms. Only after Governor Glenn Youngkin won the election to continue his role as Governor of Virginia Beach did the new political map get approved. So there’s plenty to worry about as several elections are incoming. Such as the GOP conventions, the congressional primaries and the midterms as well. These are all elections first time voters will cast ballots for while being under these newly drawn political districts.

Very quickly, let’s go over each and notice what has changed.

The Headings detail the new counties that are now part of each district—note: not all counties are detailed. Just the redrawn districts.

Underneath, you’ll see what the next pertinent election is for that district.
