After a chaotic redistricting process, New York’s political boundaries have finally been set for the 2022 election season. A lot has changed. The new lines mean some congressional veterans will vie for the same seat. More than a dozen incumbents in the State Senate may be drawn out of their current districts.
To figure out how the lines impact who represents you in Washington and Albany, enter your address in the search bar below. The political boundaries shown on this map are accurate for all 2022 races. Candidates running in each new district will be updated throughout the primary season as election officials finalize ballot slates.
New York will hold a primary for governor, lieutenant governor, Assembly seats and more on June 28, with early voting starting June 18. A separate primary for the House of Representatives and State Senate will take place August 23. Look up your polling location and a sample ballot for those races with this address look-up tool from the city Board of Elections.

Where did these maps come from? Every decade following the U.S. Census, states adjust their internal political boundaries to account for shifts in population.
In New York, the districts for Congress and the State Senate were created by a court-appointed special master in mid-May after a protracted legal fight. The Assembly lines were created by the Democrat-controlled state legislature after a newly-created commission charged with creating the new lines failed to do so, and split along partisan lines. In June, an appellate court declared the new Assembly map invalid as well, but said it should not be changed for the upcoming primary nor the November general election. The court ruled that the lines be redrawn before the 2024 election season.
