GOP Plan Would Redraw 30 House Districts
Republicans on Tuesday released their own map that would address a federal court finding that 11 House of Delegates districts approved nearly a decade ago were packed with too many African-American voters.
The proposal, introduced by Rep. Rob Bell (R-Albemarle) would impact 30 of 100 House districts stretching along a corridor from Richmond to Virginia Beach.
VPAP has charts showing how the GOP plan would change the racial composition, the partisan tendencies and the boundaries of the 30 affected districts.

Methodology: "Change in Partisanship" is based on results from the 2009 governor's race. The formula is: (Gap separating the % of vote Republican Bob McDonnell and Democrat Creigh Deeds received in districts as they exist today) MINUS (Gap separating the % of vote Republican Bob McDonnell and Democrat Creigh Deeds would have received in the proposed redrawn districts)
