Geographical History of the 7th District

This table shows how the District's geography has changed over the years (and sometimes been renumbered) with each census. Some areas incorporated in the current 7th District were located in different districts in decades past.

In 2013, the area that had historically comprised the 8th district was cast into a new 7th district following apportionment and redistricting.
