List Of United States Congressional Districts
This is a complete list of congressional districts for representation in the United States House of Representatives. The quantity (apportionment) and boundaries (redistricting) of districts are determined after each census, although in some cases states have changed the boundaries more than once per census. This list includes the 435 current and over 200 obsolete districts. It also includes 11 future districts created for the 113th Congress for those states gaining Congressional seats. For example, since the 2000 census, Nebraska has had three districts, but it used to have as many as six. Texas currently has 32 districts, but will be adding 4 due to reapportionment as a result of the 2010 census. Other states will lose districts since the number of congressional seats has been set at 435 by statute. In the November 2012 election, Puerto Rico passed a referendum calling for statehood, which could temporarily increase the electoral count by 7 electors if the U.S. Congress allows Puerto Rico to become the 51st state. A state with comparable population size, Oklahoma, has 5 representatives and 2 senators for a total of 7 elector votes. Also included here are non-voting delegations: six current and four obsolete.
The boundaries of districts often shift with each redistricting. Over time, the region and demographics represented in a district can change substantially. Furthermore, districts sometimes retain the same boundaries while changing their district numbers.

“Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions? Do they feel comfortable adapting to change? Are they easily discouraged if they cannot arrive at a solution to a problem? The answers to those questions will give you a better appraisal of their education than any list of courses, grades, or test scores.”
—Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

Old ideas can sometimes use new buildings. New ideas must use old buildings.”
—Jane Jacobs (b. 1916)
