Redistricting Reform in Virginia
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
As background for the February 25 Redistricting Forum, OneVirginia2021 Fairfax Local Action Group and the League of Women Voters of the Fairfax Area (LWVFA) prepared this document with help from the OneVirginia2021 Foundation. We hope this document will serve as a primer for a better understanding of redistricting reform in the Commonwealth, but it is not meant to be an official position statement or endorsement of a singular fix to the problem of gerrymandering. We hope you get a lot out of this. Thanks for reading.
