Under Local Law 3, the number of lawmakers will remain the same at 17. Redistricting is required every ten years following the federal census, to ensure that each lawmaker represents roughly the same number of residents.

  • District 2 will have two legislators, representing the city of Corning.
  • District 3 will have two legislators, representing Bath and Bradford.
  • District 4 will have one legislator, representing Wayland and Cohocton.
  • District 5 will have one legislator, representing Prattsburgh, Pultney, Urbana, and Wayne.
  • District 6 will have one legislator, representing Avoca, Freemont, Howard, and Wheeler.
  • District 7 will have two legislators, representing Campbell and Ervin.
  • District 8 will have one legislator, representing Lindley, Addison, and Tuscarora.
  • District 9 will have one legislator, representing Cameron, Canisteo, and Thurston.
  • District 10 will have one legislator, representing Jasper, Rathbone, Troupsburg, West Union, Greenwood, and Woodhull
  • District 11 will have two legislators, representing Caton, the town of Corning, and Hornby.
