Redistricting Maps Finalized

Just before the New Year, the Virginia State Supreme Court finalized new state legislative and congressional districts.  The State Supreme Court was thrust into the process because the "bipartisan" commission established to draw the maps could not come to an agreement on new districts based on 2020 Census data.  You can see all three maps here.  Looking that the Congressional map, one has to wonder exactly what the court's "Special Masters" were thinking when they drew these maps.  For instance, the first district, which is mostly rural, has a piece that stretches to the left and elbows into suburban western Henrico and western Chesterfield, completely separating those sections from districts that are more like those areas.  You can search the map using your address to see in which district you now live.  You can search for your State Senate district here and your House of Delegates district here.
