The arrival of 2020 Census data in August marked the start of Prince William County’s redistricting process. (See timeline.) The Board of County Supervisors requested that the independent consultant hired to manage the process present options for both seven and eight magisterial distractions. After careful consideration, the Board unanimously agreed that the County should remain at seven districts.
Both options addressed growth in the county while adhering to federal and state districting requirements and the Board’s redistricting criteria, but their decision results in the least disruption of precincts and avoids the cost of creating and running an additional district office.
Over the next month, the Board wants to hear your feedback on district boundaries. Redistricting only happens every 10 years; don’t miss this opportunity to shape how your neighborhood is represented at the local level over the next decade.
