Redistricting Office

The Redistricting Office of the West Virginia Legislature is a Joint Committee office serving both the Senate and the House of Delegates.

In a census year, data is collected based on the residence of the population on April 1st. At the state level, by April 1st of the year following the census, in this case 2011, the Census Bureau Director will provide geographically defined population counts to the Governor, legislative leaders and state liaisons.

Once the data is received, legislative leadership forms redistricting committees, which are charged to work with the Redistricting Office analysts to draw new political boundaries for Congressional, State Senate and House of Delegate Districts to ensure equal representation within West Virginia.

Once the initial plans are completed, the Redistricting Office generates the reports and maps needed for the formation of the Redistricting Bill. This normally takes place during a special session the year following the census.
