CONFUSED ABOUT THE NEW CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS?
The 2018 "Remedial Congressional Plan" ONLY changes the congressional districts for the upcoming 2018 elections. Your current representative in Congress, Dwight Evans, District Two, will remain in office until January 2019 when the new representatives elected in November 2018 from the NEW Districts Four and Five, take office. Lower Merion and Narberth were previously in District Two but that area is now divided between Four and Five. To see a map of the new districts, go to <https://www.dos.pa.gov.org> and key in Map of Remedial Congressional Plan and then choose 2018 Remedial Congressional Districts.
THIS REMEDIAL PLAN IS TEMPORARY - 2018 ONLY - WHICH IS WHY PA NEEDS A PERMANENT SOLUTION TO GERRYMANDERING. (See update on the page HOT TOPICS: Redistricting.)
