While this map keeps Schuylkill County in Pennsylvania’s 9th Congressional District, the district is drastically altered in shape and location.

It would put Schuylkill County in the same district as the following counties: Carbon, part of Luzerne, Columbia, Northumberland, Montour, Sullivan, Lycoming, Clinton, Tioga, and part of Potter. It means your home and your cabin would likely be represented by the same member of Congress.

Here’s Pennsylvania’s current map:
