North Dakota is divided into between 40 and 54 legislative districts apportioned by population as determined by the decennial census. The 2000 redistricting plan provided for 47 districts. As each district elects 2 Representatives to the House, there are currently 94 Representatives in the House.
Representatives serve 4-year terms. Elections are staggered such that half the districts have elections every 2 years.
The House Chamber is located in the North Dakota Capitol in Bismarck, North Dakota
NorthDakota is bordered on the north by the Canadian Provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba, on the west by Montana, on the south by South Dakota, and on the east, across the Red River of the North, by Minnesota.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, as of 2004, NorthDakota's population was 634,366.
NorthDakota is 47th of the 50 states in population, ahead of only Vermont, Alaska, and Wyoming.
The Dakotas were the last arable places in the United States to be explored and settled (in the whole of North America, Alberta and Saskatchewan were explored slightly before but settled slightly after).
NorthDakota, like many Plains and Midwestern states, has been suffering a significant decline in population over the last 20 years, primarily in skilled college graduates for which there are no jobs in the state.
The three largest Protestant denominations in NorthDakota are: Lutheran (37% of the total state population), Baptist (4%), Methodist (4%).
