Virginia’s House of Delegates District 83
The Republicans currently hold the House of Delegates and Governorship, in addition to the offices of the Secretary of State and Attorney General. However, VA had a Democratic trifecta as recently as 2021. All 140 seats are up for reelection in 2023.
According to Ballotpedia, The Virginia Supreme Court unanimously approved district maps for the Virginia House of Delegates and Virginia State Senate on December 28, 2021. Democratic and Republican consultants submitted statewide map proposals for consideration to the Virginia Redistricting Commission on September 18, 202. After the commission missed its deadline for approving map proposals and the Virginia Supreme Court assumed authority over the process, the two special masters selected by the court released proposals for House and Senate districts on December 8, 2021. These maps take effect for Virginia’s 2023 legislative elections.
