Redistricting Process

Process
The Stafford County Board of Supervisors are currently in the process of working towards a redistricting process with the Redistricting Committee. The Commonwealth of Virginia states in Article VII, Section 5 of the Virginia Constitution and Virginia Code § 24.2-304.1 require localities, which elect governing bodies by district, to redistrict every ten years to account for population and demographic shifts. Once the Census 2020 information is provided and approved by the General Assembly, Stafford will begin its public process with the community.
