Vote count in close Stafford races fuels criticism, concern (Free Lance-Star)

University of Mary Washington professor Stephen Farnsworth said the confusion “speaks to the problems of gerrymandering.”

The 28th District used to include all of Fredericksburg, until the Republican-controlled General Assembly approved new boundaries in 2011 that critics say were drawn for political reasons. Now Fredericksburg is split between the 28th and 88th districts.

“By trying to draw district boundaries block by block, you’re making a very difficult environment for election authorities around the state,” Farnsworth said.
