Impact of redistricting

See also: Redistricting in West Virginia

The Democratic-controlled Legislature passed a new House map on August 5, 2011, with Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin (D) vetoing it for errors. On August 21 during a special session, the Legislature approved revisions to the map, with the House voting 55-38 and the Senate narrowly passing 15-14. Tomblin signed the map into law on September 2. The redistricting cycle following the 2010 census had brought forth the idea of eliminating the state's multi-member districts in favor of 100 single-member districts in all, and while two attempts were made (before redistricting and during revisions), both failed, and Tomblin was criticized for not spearheading the movement to move to single-member districts. The number of single member districts still increased from 36 to 47 out of 67 districts.[3] Five lawsuits against the state legislative maps went as one to the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals, which upheld both the House and Senate maps, noting that single-member districts did have their advantages, but also that multi-member districts and gerrymandering were not necessarily unconstitutional, leaving these questions of policy to the legislature.[4]
