County Clerk Lisa Fancher has announced the posting of an interactive map featuring the newly drawn Congressional, Legislative, and Representative district boundaries, which were enacted pursuant to Public Act 97-0014 and Public Act 97-0006. Features of this map will provide the user the ability to display a point on the map (such as a residence on a city block) based on the entry of an address, and subsequently, that point’s geographic location relevant to these newly drawn district boundaries.

The State Board of Elections stresses that these are the districts candidates currently circulating nominating petitions for placement on the March 20, 2012 General Primary ballot are seeking to represent. These new districts will have no official representation until the candidates for the various offices are elected at the November 6, 2012 General Election. These maps will be used for all Congressional and Legislative elections through 2020.
Note: At this time, the validity of the State’s Congressional and Legislative maps is subject to federal litigation. Such litigation could result in changes to either or both district map boundaries, which may cause a voter’s address to be located in a district other than the one appearing on this website.
