Knowledge Is Power

Pennsylvania's 10th congressional district is located in the south-central region of the state. It encompasses all of Dauphin County as well as parts of Cumberland County and York County. The district includes the cities of Harrisburg and York. Prior to 2019, the district was located in the northeastern part of the state. The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania redrew the district in 2018 after ruling the previous map unconstitutional due to gerrymandering. The court added State College to the old district's boundaries while removing some Democratic-leaning areas and redesignated it the twelfth district, and they reassigned the tenth district to an area around Harrisburg and York. The new tenth district is represented by Republican Scott Perry, who previously represented the old fourth district.[3]

The district was one of the 12 original districts created prior to the 4th Congress. In 2006, when it was still located in northeastern Pennsylvania, the 10th district experienced one of the greatest party shifts among all House seats that switched party control.

Harrisburg Split into two House districts.

The 103rd district, which today includes all of the city and is represented by Rep. Patty Kim (D-Harrisburg), has been redrawn to include the city’s river wards and much of north Harrisburg, plus the close-in west shore suburbs of Camp Hill, Lemoyne, Wormleysburg and East Pennsboro Township.

The new 104th district includes much of Allison Hill and the south side of the city, plus Paxtang, Steelton, Highspire, Swatara Township and a portion of Lower Swatara Township.
