West Virginia Senate Map and Description

Since the West Virginia Senate has thirty-four members, and each district must have two senators, the number of senatorial districts is fixed at seventeen, unless the number of members changes. The districts currently range in geographical size from part of one county to parts of nine different counties in order to achieve the right population distribution to assure equal representation.

West Virginia State Code §1-2-1
