Minnesota and Wisconsin both retain congressional seats
Minnesota’s data from the 2010 U.S. Census means that the state will not lose a congressional seat. The total resident population of the state is 5,303,925, a 7.8% uptick from 4,919,479 in 2000. Minnesota is the 21st largest state.
Wisconsin’s resident population rose to 5,686,986 from 5,363,675, and it is the 20th largest state. Wisconsin hangs on to all of its congressional seats as well.
States gaining congressional seats, — and electoral votes — are Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, South Carolina, Utah, and Washington, which all gain one; Florida, which gains 2, and Texas, which with the largest increase in population, gains 4. Those losing one are Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. New York and Ohio each lose two.
The total resident population of the U. S. rose to 308,745,538, a 9.7% increase since the 2000 census.
