The Board of Supervisors adopted a final redistricting plan at its April 26 meeting, and the U.S. Attorney General notified the county on June 20 that its plan completed the required review under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 without objections. Therefore, the primary and general elections will be conducted using the new districts adopted by the board.
To create its redistricting plan, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors appointed an advisory committee to recommend new election boundaries. The committee sent their recommendations in late March, and the board held a public hearing on these redistricting proposals on April 12.
Every 10 years, Fairfax County must redraw its electoral boundaries based on the population count by the U.S. Census.
