State lawmakers unveiled congressional redistricting map options today.
The West Virginia House of Delegates members that comprise the redistricting committee debuted six options for the state’s congressional districts and one possible 100 delegate districts map.
Redistricting is conducted every 10 years following the federal Census. State lawmakers had a late start because of delays concerning the 2020 Census.
The state lost a U.S. Representative due to population declines and the House of Delegates will be made up of 100 single delegate districts beginning with the 2022 mid-term elections.
No final decision has been made.
Lawmakers anticipate a special session for both houses of the legislature to make their final decisions.
The six options are posted below.
