Thanks to the 2020 Census, new legislative maps have been drawn, approved, and signed into law to be used for the 2022 election.

And while there is a legal challenge in the courts to those maps, as it stands, in 2022, a significant shift in who people in rural western Washington County will be voting for in Oregon’s House of Representatives will take place. 

This story will examine changes only to the House side of things; changes in the Oregon Senate and the statewide Congressional maps have also taken place, but are less impactful on the immediate political landscape for the communities within this newspaper’s bounds.
