Virginia House of Delegates sends Redistricting Reform Constitutional Amendment to the Ballot in November
The Virginia House of Delegates today approved Senate Joint Resolution 18, a proposed constitutional amendment creating a nonpartisan Redistricting Commission to draw district lines after each Census. Voters will decide in November whether to adopt the amendment.
Statement: Virginia House should send redistricting reform to voters
The Virginia Legislature is one step away from sending a proposed Constitutional amendment to the voters in November. The redistricting reform measure was passed by the previous Legislature in 2019, and passed by the Senate last month, with strong bipartisan support. It was reported favorably by the House Committee earlier this week, but has not yet received a floor vote. If the House of Delegates does not pass the measure before adjourning this week, the proposed amendment will not go to voters.
