West Virginia Changes All State and Congressional Election Districts

2022 West Virginia Congressional Map

West Virginia in 2022 elections will have completely new electoral district configurations for all the House of Delegates, State Senate, and Congressional seats. This process often referred to as “gerrymandering” includes recognizing that West Virginia lost population since the last Census in 2010, requiring each district to be reflective of those population shifts.

West Virginia is losing a Congressional seat thus only two districts will remain as seen here.

The State Legislature has decided to change the boundaries of all Senate Districts as seen here.

The House of Delegates was changed so that each Delegate represents a unique area and constituent. There will be 100 unique Districts as seen here. In larger cities, the districts are quite small but having similar populations as much geographically larger Districts.

The 2022 elections will be the initial use of these new boundaries.
