See below for highlights – courtesy of @VAPLAN and @gmoomaw (Virginia Mercury reporter Graham Moomaw) – and video from today’s Virginia Redistricting Commission meeting, which got a bit heated at times (particularly over the issue of to what extent, if at all, incumbent addresses should be taken into account in drawing districts). Note that there’s not a great deal of time to complete the Commission’s work, as they’re shooting to complete their work on State Senate and House of Delegates maps sometime in the September 26-October 10 timeframe. So far, we’ve only seen drafts – by Democratic and Republican “map drawers” – of House of Delegates and State Senate districts in Northern Virginia. So there’s still a loooong way to go – need to see drafts for the entire state, then the Commission needs to hash out a single map from the two sets of partisan maps, then it all has to be approved, etc. Good luck!
