Fairfax County's redistricting effort will establish new local election districts for the Board of Supervisors and School Board. However, this effort will not change school boundaries or electoral maps for state legislators or members of Congress.
Redistricting is a legally required process to ensure proportional representation as populations grow and shift over time, and it is based on the principle of "one person, one vote."
The Board of Supervisors appointed a community advisory committee that recommended proposed new districts, and the public was invited to submit their proposed districts as well.
The Board of Supervisors is anticipated to adopt new districts at their Dec. 7 meeting, and the public is encouraged to offer input and comments on proposed maps until this date.
