Components: past and present
Historically, most of this district was located in Upstate New York.
In the 1970s it was the lower Hudson Valley district and congruent to the present 19th District. Onondaga County was split between the 32nd District (which included rural counties east of Syracuse now in the 23rd and 24th Districts) and the 33rd District (which included the Finger Lakes counties in the 24th and 29th Districts).
Since 2013, the 25th district has been located entirely within Monroe County, and includes the City of Rochester and surrounding suburbs.
In the 2018 race, the seat was vacant. State Assembly Member Joseph Morelle (Democrat) faced James Maxwell (Republican, Conservative, Reform), in the general election, which Morelle won handily.
