The district borders have changed somewhat from the previous redistrict as some of the easternmost counties were redistricted to other districts.

From 2003 to 2013 all of Crawford, Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Huron, Paulding, Putnam, Sandusky, Seneca, Van Wert, Williams, and Wood Counties were included in this district. Portions of Ashland, Lucas, Mercer, and Wyandot Counties were also a part of the 5th District.
