Population and Geography based on 2020 census
This plan splits Fairfax County's Woodburn precinct (#717) in half and separates our residents from local FCPS schools, our nearest post office, and our member of Congress who has known our neighborhood for decades.
This map does a great job at keeping as much of NOVA together as possible. I especially like the way CD-11 is able to capture the entirety of Manassas, Fairfax City, and Woodbridge in one district, as they share common interests and regional concerns. Good work!
This plan removes southern Prince William & Stafford Counties out of exurban DC and into a central Virginia sphere, not in keeping with the transportation, outer suburban interests of its citizens.
I like the map overall and gives a more evenly split based on election results in the past few years. However, the Sudley and Yorkshire districts of Prince William county is not demogrphically known for being part of the City of Manassas and Manassas Part and would be more demographically part of the northern and western parts of Prince William County.
Out of all of the official commission maps that have been released at this posting on 10-20, this is my preferred version. It looks compact, regional, and fair.
More of Norfolk should belong to the 2nd Congressional district.

I have no idea what is driving the commission to include the Peninsula in the southside Hampton Roads maps. Hampton and Newport News can anchor a Peninsula based district while Norfolk and VB can anchor one on this side of the HRBT. Accomack to James City County are not communities of interest!
I appreciate that the new C1 maps keep Tyson's Corner mostly intact and include us in the Dulles Technology Corridor out to Ashburn, rather than with the lower density community in southwest Fairfax or the inner beltway. However, I'll note that the precinct covering the area around the McLean metro station more rightly belongs with Tyson's Corner than with McLean or Pimmit Hills since this is a high density area centered on the Capital One headquarters, unlike the lower density residential areas beyond there.
I think this is far better than the original C1. I think it is good to have to two competitive districts and the partisan leanings of this map matches Virginia's partisan leanings as well. I do think Chesterfield should be with Henrico though.

Horrible map. Talk about a Democratic gerrymander! Culpeper has nothing in common with Prince William County or Charlottesville. We're simply being used to connect two left-leaning localities in order to draw a map that is guaranteed to elect a Democrat (again). We are not a community of interest with these two counties. And how is this even fair? Democrats would usually win 7 out of Virginia's 11 districts under this map. How on earth can we call a map "fair" if it gives one party 63% of the entire state's congressional seats?
Seems a little off to have Amherst, Nelson, and Albemarle in 3 different districts. Maybe put Nelson in CD6 and move parts of Bedford into CD5?
This is by far the fairest map drawn so far. More like this!
This map places Powhatan County, which is effectively an outer suburb of RVA, into the 5th District containing very rural counties. The needs of Powhatan County are very different from those rural counties still suffering economic recession. We are part of a booming economy in the Greater Richmond Region and our primary concern is containing, not increasing, growth.
