The district lines were adjusted to their current boundaries following the 2010 Census and Reapportionment process. The current boundaries took effect for the 2012 election cycle. In other words, you may not be in the same district as you were in 2010 or even 2011. This process is scheduled to begin again following the 2020 Census.
