In this year's election, you will be voting for more than just a President, Vice President and Representative in Congress. 

Amendment No. l on the back of your ballot would provide for a bipartisan redistricting commission responsible for drawing congressional and state legislative districts. It would end partisan gerrymandering by either party after a census and has been supported by both Republicans and Democrats in our state legislature. 

Prominent supporters include George Allen and Tim Kaine (who don’t usually agree on very much). Amendment 1 would be the most significant redistricting reform to pass in the Commonwealth of Virginia and make elections fairer for all Virginians.
