Republican Del. Mark Cole proposes redistricting commission (Free Lance-Star)

University of Mary Washington political science professor Stephen Farnsworth said Cole’s proposal to include only Democrats and Republicans could lead to a lot of tie votes. Independent commissions in other states have members unaffiliated with either party.

“Given the animosity between Democrats and Republicans these days, it might be very hard for such a commission to develop consensus on any line-drawing plan,” Farnsworth said.
