State representatives sorted by year first elected, 1960's
This list sorts current state representatives according to the year they were first elected or appointed to their current office of state representative.
- If a state representative previously held a different elective office, this list does not sort them based on their year of election to the office they held earlier. Rather, it sorts them only by the year of their election/appointment to a currently-held position of state representative.
- If a state representative served in office, left for a time, and then was elected again, that person is sorted by the year they were first elected.
- In some states, legislators are sworn-in to office the year that they were elected. In other states, they assume office (are sworn in) the following year, typically in January. Representatives are ranked below based on the year they were appointed or elected, not on the year they were sworn in.
