Requirement to Redistrict
Article VII, Section 5 of the Virginia Constitution and Virginia Code § 24.2-304.1 requires localities, which elect governing bodies by district, to redistrict every ten years to account for population and demographic shifts. The decennial reapportionment of each state’s congressional delegation is a requirement of the United States Constitution.

Federal, state, and local reapportionments require the use of federal census and redistricting data. On December 28, 2021, the Supreme Court of Virginia issued an order formally adopting Virginia’s Congressional and General Assembly Election District Maps. With federal and state maps adopted, Virginia’s local governments can now begin local redistricting. Redistricting is a constitutional responsibility of the Charlotte County Board of Supervisors.
Meeting Schedule
The Redistricting Committee will examine election district and precinct scenarios, assisted by the Commonwealth Regional Council, our regional Planning District Office. Redistricting Committee Meetings will be scheduled according to member availability. The first work session is scheduled for Monday, February 14, 2022 at 4:00 pm in the Boardroom of the Charlotte County Administration Office at 250 LeGrande Avenue, Suite A, Charlotte Court House, Virginia.
Committee Members
At their December 13, 2021 meeting, the Charlotte County Board of Supevisors determined by consensus that the seven members of the Board of Supervisors would serve as the local redistrictring committee.
