Democrats' Plan Would Redraw 29 of 100 House Districts


The General Assembly will convene Thursday in response to a federal court mandate to reduce the concentration of African-American voters in 11 House of Delegates stretching from Richmond to Norfolk.

VPAP will analyze each plan introduced to determine the number of districts affected and how new maps would change the racial composition and partisan lean of each district involved.

The first plan, introduced Wednesday by the chair of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus, would affect 29 of 100 House districts.
