Important Information

Redistricting meetings

Goochland County has published the schedule for community meetings to explain proposed changes in electoral redistricting. This could include changes in precinct boundaries and polling places.

Preliminary figures from the 2010 census indicate that Districts 2 and 5 have more than the ideal number of voters to ensure equal representation for all voters. This will mean that district boundaries will need to be adjusted.

The meetings will all begin at 7 p.m. The basic content of the meetings will be the same, but each is expected to address matters pertaining to the district in which it is held. More details about the census and redistricting are available on the county website for your review.

Please plan to attend at least one meeting.

The schedule, which is also posted on the county website is:

District 1:
March 22, 2001 at County Line Baptist Church, which is located at 4070 County Line Road.
March 24, 2011 at the Fife Company 4 Fire-
