Redistricting Information

The Redistricting process is required by state law and the Virginia Constitution and takes place every ten years after the decennial Census.  The last redistricting process took place in 2011. At the January 2011 Board of Supervisor meeting, the Board appointed members to the Redistricting Committee and charged them with the task of redrawing the magisterial district lines. 

Cumberland has five magisterial districts.  Each district (see map) covers a different geographical area of the County.  The goal of the Redistricting Committee is to equally distribute population amongst each of the five voting districts. 

Any questions should be directed to the County Administrator’s Office at (804) 492-3625.
