The City Council will also consider a proposed ordinance to change election district boundaries and polling places to City Council. Their primary concerns include ensuring compliance with state and local district boundaries, suitable voting facilities, accessibility, and manageable precinct sizes. Currently, three precincts west of I-395 have around 5,000 registered voters each, necessitating new precincts to accommodate growth and reduce voter lines for the 2024 General Election. The Code of Virginia mandates precincts not exceed 5,000 registered voters and requires redrawing boundaries if over 4,000 voters turn out for a Presidential Election, a situation anticipated in the 2024 election. If adopted there will be a second reading, public hearing and final passage this Saturday.
