RUSTBURG, VA - Campbell County Community Development is currently engaged in the redistricting process, and encouraging citizens to share their opinions on four options.
Per Federal law and the Code of Virginia, Campbell County is required to adjust election districts every ten years in correlation with the most recent decennial Census data. In Virginia, redistricting is mandatory for localities that elect candidates from a district or ward system, to equalize, as nearly as practical, representation in the election districts on the basis of population.
