Virginia Governor Calls Special Session to Redraw Districts
Gov. Ralph Northam signed a proclamation calling Virginia lawmakers into a special session on August 30.
The purpose of the special session is to redraw districts of the House of Delegates.
A U.S. District Court ruled on June 26 that House of Delegates districts were racially gerrymandered to concentrate black voters.
The court ordered new boundaries to be drawn by October 30 for use in next year’s elections.
