Comments on Redistricting
Mecklenburg County Decennial Districting --- 2020s
The Mecklenburg Board of Supervisors want to hear from you! A Public Hearing will be held at the July 11, 2022 Board Meeting
The Constitution of Virginia requires that every ten years, local governments “reapportion the representation in the governing body among the districts in a manner provided by law” (Article VII, Section 5). The ten-year threshold corresponds with the conclusion of the Census conducted by the United States Census Bureau every decade. Due to the delays in completion of the 2020 Census, redistricting for the 2020s has occurred later than in recent prior decades. In the case of Mecklenburg, this did not harm any election, since no county-wide district offices are up until 2023.
At the Board’s June 13, 2022 meeting, a draft map, Option C - Adjusted, was presented for the entire County. This map built upon prior options reviewed by the Board in April and May. After the map was presented, the Board voted to hold a public hearing on Option C - Adjusted in July.
The public's opinions are welcomed and desired! Please send written comments on the final draft map for redistricting below.
After consideration of the public comment, the Board will enact a final map in August.
