Twenty-five pieces of legislation, including several calling for redistricting reform or an overhaul for the way Virginia restores voting rights to felons, went down on a single subcommittee vote in the Virginia House Monday.

Each resolution called for a change to the state’s constitution, which requires two successful General Assembly votes in two separate sessions, then a statewide referendum to enact the change.
