New WNY Congressional Districts


The new districts are NOTHING like the old districts. You might be surprised who may be representing you come November.

For instance, if Brian Higgins doesn’t lose his re-election bid as he should, he will represent the entire City of Buffalo and ALL of the surrounding suburbs.

No one is telling you what district you are now in — not the news media, not the State Board of Elections — we think it’s part of the “Incumbent Protection Act.”  You can go here for a PDF of the entire state, but don’t expect specifics.

District 23 — Includes the counties of Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Allegany, Steuben, Yates, Schuyler, Tompkins, Tioga and Chemung
Candidates:  Tom Reed (R, C, I)  Nate Shinagawa (D)

District 25 — Includes most of Monroe County, except the Town of Hamlin.
Candidates:  Louise Slaughter (D), Maggie Brooks (R, C)

District 26 — Includes the City of Niagara Falls, most of Amherst, all of Buffalo, the Tonawandas, Grand Island, Cheektowaga, Lackawanna and West Seneca.
Candidates: Brian Higgins (D), Mike Madigan (R, C, I)

District 27 –  Includes the counties of Niagara, Erie, Orleans, Genesee, Wyoming, Livingston and some of Ontario.
Candidates: Kathy Hochul (D), Chris Collins (R, C)
