Your Legislative District
Voting districts are the geographical areas that determine a community’s political representation. At the state-level, New Jersey has 40 legislative districts. From these districts, voters elect 1 State Senator and 2 Assembly Members to represent them as lawmakers in Trenton. Once every 10 years after the Census, the boundary lines of these voting districts must change to account for population shifts and demographic changes. This process is known as “redistricting.”
Without a fair redistricting process, we cannot have fair elections.

How has your district changed over the years? What towns have been added to or removed from your district from one redistricting cycle to the next? Are cohesive communities kept together in your district, or have they been broken apart?
