|2012 Redistricting Map|
Every ten years, the Constitution requires a census to be taken and Congressional districts to be reapportioned. Each Congressional district in a state must contain roughly the same number of people. The last census was conducted in 2010, with data made available to each state in 2011 so that they could draw new lines for their state's Congressional districts.
To help you understand how this might affect you, you can use the map below to see how the new district lines compare to the current district lines. The current 2nd District is shown in red, and the new 3rd District is shown in blue. The purple area is where they overlap. Keep in mind that current Congressional representation will not change until January of 2013.
This means that if you live in the purple area, you will have no change in your Congressional district between 2012 and 2013. If you live in one of the red areas, you will vote in a new district in 2012. However, it is important to note that I am still your Congressman until January 5, 2013. My office is still here to be your liaison to the federal government and I will continue to work for you until then.
