The impact of population changes within the state's legislative districts are adjusted following each federal census. The object is to maintain House districts that are close to equal size across the state. The state's population is divided by 100 house districts and 38 senate districts.

The effect of the most recent redistricting has shifted the 96th district and its legislator, Rep. Jill York, to the south to include Lawrence County. Rep. York's father, James "Happy" York was a proud Lawrence county native.

Lewis County has been absorbed into the 99th district which at this time has no resident representative. Since there is no seated representative for that district, Rep. York has pledged to continue to serve her former constituents until the election of 2014.

As the transition to the new districts continues, the counties of both the former and the present 96th District will be highlighted on this website.
