Redistricting Puts Goochland in the 5th Congressional District for 2022 Mid terms and beyond
The VA Supreme Court appointed two special masters to redraw the maps which happens every ten years. The special masters were appointed after the Redistricting Commission was unable to fulfill its mission to create non partisan district maps.
Goochland is in the 5th Congressional District and the seat is currently held by Republican Bob Good. Goochland is in the 10th Senate District. This is a new district and there is no incumbent for this district. Goochland continues to be split in the House of Delegates. The majority of Goochland is now in the 56th District represented by John McGuire. The new 57th District is a new district and does not have an incumbent. It is made up of 90% Henrico and 10% Goochland.
