Redistricting Plan Now in Effect

The Albemarle County Redistricting Plan Approved by Ordinance Adopted May 4, 2011 is now in Effect

The U.S. Department of Justice has notified the County that it does not impose any objection to the specified changes in the Redistricting Plan adopted by the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors on May 4, 2011. The redistricting ordinance is now effective and the new district lines, precincts, and polling places are legally established and are in place for the 2011 elections. A map of the new magisterial districts, precincts and polling places can be viewed here.

The Board is required by Article VII, § 5 of the Constitution of Virginia to redistrict every 10 years following the public release of decennial census data to re-balance the County’s population so that each district’s population is as equal as possible to every other district. The members of the Board of Supervisors and the School Board are elected from the six magisterial districts. The Board also reviews and redraws the boundaries of the precincts within the magisterial districts and evaluates the locations of polling places to assure compliance with State and Federal law.
