Note: District partisanship based on VPAP's estimate of results in the 2021
gubernatorial election. (See VPAP Index.)
The length of the arrow represents the change in the partisan vote margin between the old district
and the new district. The vertical line indicates the number of percentage points separating Republican
Glenn Youngkin and Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the district that an incumbent represented at the time
of the November 2021 election. The tip of the arrow indicates the margin in the newly drawn district
where the same incumbent would run for re-election in November 2023.
Example: If a candidate's new district is 55% Republican/45% Democratic, and the old
district was 60% Republican/40% Democratic, the calculation would be:
(new district margin) − (old district margin)
(55% R − 45% D) − (60% R − 40% D)
10% R − 20% R
The new district has a vote margin that is 10 percentage points more Democratic than the old district.
