Spotsylvania County 2022 Redistricting

REDISTRICTING PUBLIC NOTICE


Spotsylvania's redistricting effort establishes new local election districts for the Board of Supervisors and School Board. Redistricting is the process to draw new electoral boundaries. It ensures election districts have roughly an equal number of people. Redistricting is required by law, and it takes place every 10 years after the Census. The collection and processing of census data was delayed last year, due to the pandemic. Redistricting does not change school attendance boundaries.

Additionally, the county will not draw new election districts for lawmakers in the Virginia General Assembly and U.S. Congress. The Virginia Supreme Court has approved the new Congressional, Senate and House of Delegate boundaries.  View the order and approved maps.

County staff has put forward four different proposed redistricting scenarios for your review and feedback.  They may be accessed via the link to the left of the screen.  Each scenario map can be enlarged to view more detail.

How Can the Public Participate?

Public input is key to the process, and there are two ways the public is invited to participate:

  1. Online Comments Form - Share your input by using the online Comments Form that can be found in the links to the left.
  2. Public Meetings - The Spotsylvania County Board of Supervisors will be holding meetings discussing redistricting options. Meetings are listed on the County Meeting Calendar and the Meeting Agendas page.  A public hearing is currently scheduled to be held at the Board of Supervisors meeting on March 22nd.  Additionally, meetings can be viewed online.
