The above maps, by fairdistrictspa.com, show how U.S. Congressional District 10, which includes Pike County, has changed over the past six decades, from compact to wide spreading. Except for the 1960s, the district has always included all or much of Pike (tucked into the easternmost tip of the state's northern half, Pike is easy to find). But, like most Congressional districts in Pennsylvania, District 10 has shape-shifted over time.

The district is currently represented by Republican Tom Marino.

Last week the Pennsylvania Supreme Court struck down the state's congressional map, saying the boundaries “clearly, plainly and palpably" violate the state's constitution. The court gave the state legislature until Feb. 9 to pass a replacement map.

Pike County is not the oddest-looking district in the state. Fairdistrictspa.com says District 7, which spreads across five counties, "has a shape so incongruous, it’s known as 'Goofy Kicking Donald Duck.'”
