In 2011, the Indiana State Legislature re-drew the Congressional districts based on updated population information from the 2010 census.

In 2011 redistricting, The Hill published a list of the Top Ten House Members who were helped by redistricting.[9] Todd C. Young, representative from Indiana's 9th congressional district, ranked 10th on the list.[9] The article notes that in the redistricting process, controlled by Republicans, Young benefited from taking pockets of Republicans from Larry Bucshon’s district next door in the 8th district and adding them into Young's 9th district.[9]
