Redistricting Amendment Forum:
Amendments to the Virginia Constitution must be passed by two different General Assemblies (an election in between) with exactly the same wording, and then be ratified by the voters in the following November General Election. Currently, the Constitution places responsibility for creating congressional and General Assembly (GA) districts in the hands of the GA.
Folks around the Commonwealth have been trying for years to replace this process, whereby the ruling party incumbents select their voters, with an independent redistricting process, where the voters could actually select their representatives. Click Here for more information.
