Delaware Representative District 23
Delaware has divided the state into forty-one Representative Districts – RDs – and each district elects one State Representative to serve it. The 23rd RD includes some of the City of Newark, along with areas west and north of town. It is noteworthy that every ten years the state redraws the lines, to adapt to shifting population. The 23rd RD district was redrawn in 2011, and now includes more communities north of Newark, and less of the actual southern half of the city, than it had before 2011.
Paul Baumbach is the current State Representative; he was first elected in 2012 and is running for re-election. If there is a Democratic candidate who files to run for this seat, the Primary Election will be on September 13, 2016. All voters who have registered as members of the Democratic Party are eligible to vote in the Primary Election. If there is a candidate from another party who files to run for this seat, the General Election will be on November 8th. All registered voters, of all parties, living in the 23rd RD, are eligible to vote in the General Election.
