Redistricting Redux

For those who, like me, couldn’t make it to last week’s Stafford County redistricting town hall meeting, tonight is your second chance. And maybe your last chance to learn about the plan and respond in this sort of setting.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the North Stafford High School auditorium. The topic is the proposed redistricting map, pictured here:

    The proposed changes actually reduce the actual number of minority voters in the Aquia district by 10% and swap them to the Griffis-Widewater district. Since that 10% change is twice the permissible 5% total variance per district I could imagine that the Dept of Justice and maybe even local courts may have some concerns.
