Senate Joint Resolution No. 352 on Redistricting

description

Redistricting is a contentious issue in United States and Virginia politics. There is always the possibility that the majority party will redraw voting district lines so that they will be more likely to remain in political power. This amendment to the Virginia constitution, drafted by Creigh Deeds, attempts to stop improper redistricting practices. A close reading of the document can show ways that redistricting can be manipulated to influence the outcome of elections.
