Sickle-shaped HD33 includes a portion of Collin Co. and all of Rockwall Co. Beginning in Frisco on the west side of Collin Co., the district traces the county border to the north, then all the way to the east, then to the south all the way to Rockwall Co. Nearly 55% of the votes cast in the 2016 primary came from Rockwall Co., but Rockwall Co. has comprised a higher proportion of voters in the 2012 (66%) and 2014 (68%) Republican runoffs.
