Maryland General Assembly

Potomac is split between two state legislative districts, 15, which includes much of the upcounty, and 16, which includes Bethesda and Chevy Chase. Each district has one senator and three delegates. All members of the Montgomery County delegation to the Maryland General Assembly are Democrats.

Maryland's existing districts were adopted in 2002. The redistricting process began with the Census count in spring of 2010. It will continue with public hearings, review and analysis of proposed plans and eventual adoption of revised districts. They will be in place in time for the Congressional primary of 2012 and the State Legislative Election of 2014.
