Question: Why are the districts changing?

Answer: According to the United States Constitution, the federal government must conduct a census (population count) every ten years. For representation purposes, Virginia uses that data to update existing district lines for the US House of Representatives, the Virginia House of Delegates, and the Virginia Senate to ensure each district has roughly the same number of residents.

Q: How do I find out which district I live in?

A: To view your voter information—including your polling location—please visit the Virginia Citizen Portal.

The Virginia Public Access Project (VPAP) is an additional source that can be used to understand redistricting and track campaign finance and electoral data.

Q: When will my House of Delegates district change?

A: Elections in the new district lines for the House of Delegates will be held in 2023. Your current delegate (elected in 2021) will continue to represent you until the new House of Delegates is sworn in on Wednesday, January 10, 2024.

I am honored to serve in the House of Delegates and truly enjoy representing the citizens of James City and York Counties. While I am disappointed that the newly drawn 71st District does not include York County, I look forward to continuing to serve residents of James City County and to meeting and working with the voters in New Kent County and the City of Williamsburg.

If you currently reside in the 96th District but will not be part of the new 71st District, we remain available to assist you with any state-related issue or agency until the next House of Delegates is sworn in on Wednesday, January 10, 2024.
