The members of the New Jersey Legislature are chosen from 40 electoral districts. Each district elects one Senator and two Assemblymen.

New Jersey is one of only seven states with nested state legislative districts, in which the lower house's districts are coextensive with a single state Senate seat. In New Jersey, each district elects one Senator and two Assembly members. (States which have similar practices are Arizona, Idaho, Maryland, North Dakota, South Dakota and Washington).

Districts are reapportioned decennially by the New Jersey Apportionment Commission following each United States Census, as provided by Article IV, Section III of the state Constitution.

The legislative districts listed below went into effect with the swearing-in of the 221st Legislature in 2024. They were used for regular elections from 2023 through 2029 following the 2020 United States Census. The districts were supposed to go into effect with the 2021 elections, however, this was delayed due to the census information being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[1] The districts are as follows:[2]
