Prior to the 1992 remap the 25th District was centered in the Utica area (now the 24th District). In the 1970s it was the lower Hudson Valley district and congruent to the present 19th District. The 25th District was a Westchester/Rockland seat in the 1960s covering areas now in the 17th and 18th Districts.
In the 1980s the Syracuse area was entirely in the 27th District. Prior to the 1982 remap Onondaga County was split between the 32nd District (which included rural counties east of Syracuse now in the 23rd and 24th District) and the 33rd District (which included the Finger Lakes counties in the 24th and 29th Districts).
Note that in New York State electoral politics there are numerous minor parties at various points on the political spectrum. Certain parties will invariably endorse either the Republican or Democratic candidate for every office, hence the state electoral results contain both the party votes, and the final candidate votes (Listed as "Recap").US House election, 2006: New York District 25 Party Candidate Votes % ±% RepublicanJames T.
