Massachusetts’ 9th Congressional District Race

After the 2010 Census, Massachusetts will lose the 10th Congressional District due to our state’s low population growth. This forced the district maps to be redrawn. In 2013, New Bedford will be represented in the Massachusetts’ 9th District that will include:

  • All of Barnstable County, Dukes County, and Nantucket County.
  • The following areas in Bristol County: New Bedford, Acushnet, Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Westport and much of Fall River.
  • The following areas in Plymouth County: Carver, Duxbury, Halifax, Hanover, Hanson, Kingston, Marion, Marshfield, Mattapoisett, Middleborough, Norwell, Pembroke, Plymouth, Plympton, Rochester, Rockland, and Wareham.
