Virginia is ranked as one of the most gerrymandered states in the country both on the congressional and state levels based on lack of compactness and contiguity of its districts.
Fauquier County has been divided through gerrymandering to include two congressional districts and three Virginia House of Delegates districts. We deserve better than that!
“We believe the citizens of Virginia should be able to choose their elected representatives instead of allowing politicians to manipulate elections by hand-picking their voters. Our redistricting process should be impartial and transparent with the goal of serving our communities, not dividing them.
We believe that an independent commission, not the General Assembly, should be in charge of redrawing the district lines using objective, non-partisan criteria.”
