All Candidates for Governor and Lieutenant Governor Support Changes to Virginia's Partisan Redistricting Process

The non-partisan redistricting group One Virginia 2021 says all of Virginia's candidates for Governor and Lieutenant Governor this year support changes to Virginia's partisan redistricting process. 

One Virginia 2021 has been holding round tables across the Commonwealth with the statewide candidates and members of the public.

Brian Cannon, Executive Director of the group, has been pleased with the discussions.

“The floor of this debate has risen. It’s no longer like it was 10 years ago, ‘should we end Gerrymandering or should we not?’ Now the question has been moved to ‘how do you do it?’”

One Virginia 2021 is appealing an April ruling against their suit challenging 11 state House and Senate districts for failing to meet a constitutional requirement that districts be compact.

The state Supreme Court is expected to decide whether to hear the case by late August.
