New Boundaries Will Affect Voters in Aug. 23 Democratic Primary

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

The Virginia General Assembly has created new boundaries for the 90th House District. A Democratic primary election will be held in the district on Tuesday, Aug. 23. Some voters who were formerly in the district are now outside the district. Others who were outside are now inside.


The district formerly included all voters in Virginia Beach who lived in the Reon, Shell and Aragona precincts. The General Assembly has split these precincts. As a result, only some registered voters in these precincts are still in the 90th House District. Those who are eligible to vote in this election will be notified by a letter.


Likewise, the new boundaries also will affect voters in the Virginia Beach precincts of College Park, Sherry Park, Baker, Davis Corner and Newtown. Some voters in these precincts are now in the 90th House District and are eligible to vote in the primary election.


The Virginia Beach City Council has taken appropriate steps to approve new precinct boundary lines to take effect in the November general election. This will ensure that there are no split precincts. Everyone voting in each precinct will have the same ballot. All registered voters will be notified of their new precincts.
