Maryland retained eight seats in the U.S. House of Representatives with the 1980 census. One
representative is elected from each of the eight congressional districts. In the description of district
boundaries, all references to election districts, wards, and precincts are to the geographical boundaries as
they existed on June 1, 1981. Precinct boundaries are dynamic. Changes occur to reflect population shifts
and to ensure convenient polling places for all voters. Local election boards can provide current
information on precincts encompassed within each congressional district. The congressional districts were
enacted by Chapter 106, Acts of 1982.
