Following the 2010 Census, Wisconsin is keeping its 8 congressional seats. In redistricting, the Wisconsin Legislature sought to even out the districts, which due to the census information, required making the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd districts smaller, and making the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 8th larger. The new district map was signed into law on August 9, 2011.
On November 2, 2010, Tammy Baldwin won re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives, defeating Chad Lee (R).
