Every 10 years, Virginia works through the process of redistricting for both state and federal districts. Historically the majority party works through a closed door process to draw district lines that give them a powerful advantage in future elections. As the demographics of Virginia have changed and Americans are voting in increasing numbers, it is all the more important that we adopt an impartial and nonpartisan process to draw the lines in the future. We will work through the legislature to call for fair and open process to pave the way to redistricting in the future. We will also closely track related concerns such as the implementation of Virginia’s voter I.D. law to make sure that people are not systematically disenfranchised from voting.
