Past Components

New York's 32nd Congressional District was first formed in 1872 and consisted of Chautauqua County, New York and Cattaraugus County, New York. Then in 1874 the congressional districts of New York were redrawn and the 32nd district was moved so it was Erie County, New York the location of Buffalo, New York. With 178,699 residents it was the most populous district in New York, with its closest competitor being the 153,000 population of New York's 1st congressional district on Long Island.

When District Boundaries were again redrawn in 1885, the 32nd district was reduced to just covering Buffalo.

By 1892 even Buffalo was too populous for a congressional district, and the city was split, with the southern portion being put in the 32nd district.

In the 1902 redistricting the 32nd district was moved to Monroe County, New York, which is dominated by the city of Rochester.
