Redistricting of West Virginia in 2022: Congressional maps by district


Here’s how the new Congress map changes voting power

Every 10 years, states redraw the boundaries of their congressional districts to reflect new census population figures. West Virginia lost a congressional seat due to population decline, meaning Republicans could not protect their three congressional incumbents.

The state legislature attracted two secure Republican seats, placing Representatives Alex Mooney and David McKinley in the state’s new 2nd District. Mooney vs. McKinley is the nation’s first member-versus-member primary this election cycle.
