Virginia congressional redistricting map comparisons

With the passage of Del. Rob Bell’s HB251 in the House of Delegates here are a few maps that compare the current congressional districts with the HOD plan. Locally Salem will be in the 9th district where Rep. Morgan Griffith lives. The Senate version as in another comparison map below moved the city of Roanoke to Griffith’s 9th district. With control in the Senate 20-20 Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling is expected to break an expected tie vote confirming the HOD congressional district plan. Whether the courts will nullify this plan and have the courts draw the lines is yet to be determine. Virginia code calls for the districts to have been drawn in 2011. The GOP stalled it until the new Republican controlled Senate took office in the 2012 session. GO HERE FOR INTERACTIVE MAP. CLICK TO ENLARGE MAP
