ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Virginia’s Redistricting Commission met Monday afternoon in Richmond for a public hearing. This was one of several meetings the Commission has held throughout the summer, but this is the first time the commission will have access to new census data which was released late last week.

We should get our first look at the new district lines in September. The redistricting commission is required to hold eight public hearings, after it produces its first set of maps.

You can find the livestream for Monday’s meeting here.

You can watch the July 29 meeting here and the July 15 hearing for the southwest region here.

Eight public hearings total are to be held in summer 2021. For updates and additional information, visit the Commission’s website.
