Updated: Jul 6, 2021

On June 22nd the Fairfax Board of Governors appointed their 2021 Redistricting Advisory Committee. The Committee is tasked with recommending proposed new elections districts to the Board which will ultimately determine the new districts that will be adopted. As the country inches closer to the 2022 midterm elections the Committee will be essential in ensuring the elections are fair and are not gerrymandered.
