Redistricting Commission Applicants

Some 1,238 people have offered their services as one of eight citizen members of Virginia's new Redistricting Commission. Those selected will serve alongside eight legislators. Next step: By January 1, legislative leaders will nominate at least 64 of the applicants for consideration by a panel of retired judges. By January 15, the judges must pick eight nominees who reflect the "racial, ethnic, geographic, and gender diversity of the Commonwealth." Timeline
