Of the 11 Congressional Districts in Virginia, 3 are partially in Prince William County.

Prince William County is represented in Richmond by 5 State Senators out of 40 & 8 State Delegates out of 100.

Of our 5 State Senate Districts, only 1 is entirely within the County boundaries. Two are mostly in Fairfax County; one is mostly in Loudoun County and one meanders from our western border down south  through Stafford, Spotsylvania  and 2 other Counties along the Potomac.

Of our 8 Delegate Districts, only 4 are entirely within our County boundaries. One is mostly in Loudoun County, one is mostly in Fairfax County, one is mostly in Stafford County and one also covers some of Fauquier County.
