After the census is conducted every ten years, Article VII, Section 5 of the Constitution of Virginia and Virginia Code Section 24.2-304.1(B) require that voters be reapportioned. This process is often referred to as redistricting and Virginia Code Section 24.2-304.1(B) places the responsibility for this process with the Board of Supervisors.
The Board of Supervisors appointed a citizen advisory committee to help it with the redistricting process. This committee, referred to as the Redistricting Advisory Citizen Committee, will provide advice to the Board of Supervisors regarding the boundaries for Board of Supervisors districts, School Board districts, precincts, and polling places. Elementary School districts are not changed or impacted by this process.
