Release of census data starts the clock on Virginia redistricting

The census data of 2020 has been released. Time to draw the lines. Thanks for the redistricting reform - still keep an eye on them so we know they are behaving. https://www.wdbj7.com/2021/08/12/release-census-data-starts-clock-virginia-redistricting/

Thursday afternoon, the U.S. Census Bureau released the data that states will use to redraw the lines of their legislative and congressional districts. And members of Virginia’s new redistricting commission have no time to waste.

Commission Testimony by Deb Wake, President, League of Women Voters of Virginia – League of Women Voters of Virginia

"The League began to pay attention to redistricting back in the 1950s and began to advocate in 1983 when our members supported a more equitable map-drawing process. Ten years ago, we partnered with law professor Rebecca Green, at William & Mary, to sponsor a contest for student-drawn maps to show that it is possible to produce maps that give better representation to voters than the gerrymandered maps put forward by whichever majority party had the privilege to draw the new lines....."

Right now, Congress, the Supreme Court, and state legislatures are deciding on bills and laws impacting voting rights.

Hundreds of bills to restrict voting rights are moving through 48 state legislatures -- and 26 have already passed. But it's not too late to stand up for voters across the US.

The For the People Act (S1) would protect and strengthen the right to vote by answering many of these new state voting restrictions. Learn what’s at stake, how we got here, and up to the minute news on the fight to defend voting rights during Live From the Frontlines, a discussion with journalist Ari Bermann: https://bit.ly/3qvYHuw
