10th congressional seat

Dec 26, 2018, 6:00pm MST

There could be more Arizona representation on Capitol Hill in a couple years, the result of continued population growth in the state.

An analysis by Virginia-based Election Data Services shows Arizona could get a 10th congressional seat as a result of population shifts in the U.S., according to Capitol Media Services and the Arizona Daily Star.

With the House of Representatives limited to 435
total seats, Arizona's gain will mean another state's
loss. Election Data Services projects that several
states in the Northeast and Midwest — among them Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois and New York — are projected to lose seats in Congress.

States in the South and West, including Colorado, Oregon, Florida and North Carolina, are projected to gain seats.

The distribution will be determined after the 2020 census, which likely will result in redistricting across the U.S. Arizona's incoming delegation of nine features five Democrats and four Republicans. The state relies on an Independent Redistricting Committee to draw districts.


Arizona could be poised for more representation in Congress after 2020.

The shift would give a bit more power to Arizona's delegation on matters ranging from immigration to defense spending, all of which could impact local businesses.
