District and election history[edit]

When the 40-district map was created in 1973, the 32nd District consisted of most of northern Jersey City and North Bergen.[5] For the 1981 redistricting, again a northern section of Jersey City was included as well as North Bergen, Secaucus, Kearny, East Newark, and Harrison.[6] No major changes occurred in the 1991 redistricting though a narrower portion of Jersey City made up a part of the 32nd District and Fairview and Edgewater were added to the district for the first time.[7] In the 2001 redistricting, Edgewater was removed and the Jersey City portion of the district was relegated to just the northern corner of the city.[8] All of Jersey City was removed in the 2011 redistricting, but Edgewater was re-added and Guttenberg and West New York were added to the district for the first time.[1]
