The final maps are out.
For about the next 10 years, Warren County will be represented by three politicians in the Pennsylvania General Assembly.
Right away, two of them will be new faces for the county.
In the House of Representatives, the whole county is still in the 65th District - currently held by Kathy Rapp, who is the only candidate who will appear on the ballot in November. The 65th District shifts outside the county. The old line included a portion of McKean County and all of Forest County. The new map does not include any of McKean County, lops off Jenks and Barnett townships in Forest County, and adds Sparta, Rome, Athens, Troy, Oil Creek, Bloomfield, and Steuben townships in Crawford County.
In the past, the county was split between two senatorial districts - the 21st with Mary Jo White and the 25th of Joe Scarnati. The portion of the county in the 25th was limited geographically to Mead Township, Clarendon Borough, and the City of Warren.
The county will still be part of two senatorial districts moving forward, however, the 25th District is out and the 50th is stepping in.
Sen. Bob Robbins of Mercer County is the incumbent in the 50th Senate District. Residents of the townships along the western edge of Warren County - Columbus, Spring Creek, Eldred, and Southwest - will be part of that constituency.
White has announced her plan to retire. Scott Hutchinson, a long-time representative from Venango County, is the only candidate for the 21st Senate District seat on the ballot.
In January, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that the preliminary plan for reapportionment was "contrary to law."
If that plan had been approved, the 65th Representative District would not include all of Warren County. The 67th District, held by Martin Causer, was proposed to include Mead and Sheffield townships and Clarendon. The 65th would have retained all of Forest County and Troy Township, Crawford County, would have remained in the 6th District.
About 1,000 more people - a total of 62,755, according to www.redistricting.state.pa.us - are part of the 65th District as a result of the final changes.
On the other hand, the county would only have one senator. The original plan called for the 21st District to include all of Warren County. The final plan took away four Warren County townships and about one quarter of the area of Erie County, while shuffling areas of Butler County.
In the final plan, there are 260,675 people - almost 11,000 more than in the preliminary plan - in the 21st District.
The 50th District lost about 3,400 people from the preliminary to the final plan, ending up with a population of 245,958.
