The 26th congressional district of New York is a congressional district for the United States House of Representatives in Western New York. It includes parts of Erie and Niagara counties. The district includes the cities of Buffalo, Lackawanna, Niagara Falls, Tonawanda, and North Tonawanda.

Contents

The office of representative for this district became vacant on February 9, 2011 following the resignation of Republican Chris Lee. [3] A special election was held May 24, 2011, and Democrat Kathy Hochul was elected. [4] After redistricting, Brian Higgins, a Democrat has represented the district since 2013.

Future

The district may become obsolete following the 2020 United States Census, if New York loses 2 House districts following the census, resulting in it having only 25 districts. However, if New York loses only 1 House district, this district will remain in existence following the census.

The 26th District covered the area now in the 22nd District during the 1990s and the area now in the 23rd District in the 1980s.
