Illinois To Lose US Representative Seat

Illinois is set to lose one seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Census Bureau said on Monday that the redistribution of the 435 congressional seats based on population shifts in the 2020 Census would force Illinois to lose one seat. There was concern that Illinois might have even lost two seats, but they will only lose one.  State Representative Avery Bourne says it was only a matter of time stating that Illinois is one of the only midwest states to lose a representative.



Illinois House Republican Redistricting Committee members responded to the first 2020 census numbers saying that now is the time to start reversing this population loss.



In total, Texas, Colorado, Florida, Montana, North Carolina, and Oregon each gained one seat. Along with Illinois, California, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia all lost one seat.
