Congressional & Legislative Districts
Maryland adopted new Congressional districts on October 20. 2011 (per U.S. Constitution Article I, Section 2) and new State Legislative districts on February 24, 2012 (per Maryland Constitution Article III, Section 5) based on the changes in population reported in the 2010 U.S. Census and in accordance with Maryland’s “No Representation Without Population Act” of 2010.
