The Albemarle Board of Supervisors signed off on some shifts of the magisterial district boundaries, Brandon Shulleeta writes for the Progress, moving thousands of people into new districts. Though there are some small changes just north and south of Charlottesville, the big changes are down around Scottsville and towards Crozet. The changes are based on new census data, intended to balance the populations of the county’s Board of Supervisors districts. What with the entire history of Virginia up until around 1965, this plan has to by OKd by the Department of Justice before it can become official. That should happen in time for November’s election to be based on the new boundaries.
