BOISE, Idaho - For the second time in nearly two decades, 31 members of Idaho's state lawmakers are women.
On Election Day, Idaho voters picked the 31 female lawmakers to hold legislative offices across the state. There are 105-members in the predominantly-Republican Idaho Legislature.
Nine women will serve in the Senate, while 22 women will hold seats in the House.
Eleven of the women are Democrats, and the remaining 20 are Republicans.
Though women are more than half of the American population, they now account for just a fifth of all U.S. representatives and senators, and one in four state lawmakers.
They serve as governors of only six states and are mayors in roughly 19 percent of the nation's largest cities.
