    Arrow What is your Congressional District?


    *Ads Disappear After 100 Posts*
    All 435 seats in the US House of Representatives are up for election on November 7th.
    If you are not sure which district you are in, there is an easy two stage process to find out.

    1] First you need to know your zip+4. If you don't know it, go to this site to look it up.
    http://zip4.usps.com/zip4/welcome.jsp

    2] Then go to this site and enter your zip+4 in the required fields.
    http://www.house.gov/zip/ZIP2Rep.html
    The regular 5 digit part of your zip code and the +4 portion go in separate boxes.
    Once they are entered properly, click Look up Representative.
    I entered 60303-0001 and it gave me the name of my representative, Danny K. Davis, and the district I'm located in, Illinois 7th.

    _____________________________________________

    The way that political analysts and pundits usually refer to congressional districts is by the state's postal abbreviation and the district's number. If the district has a number under 10, then a zero is inserted in front of it. So my district would be called IL-07. In states with only one representative, the two digit number is replaced by the letters AL for "At Large".
    So if you live in South Dakota, your district would be written SD-AL.
    If you don't know your state's two letter postal abbreviation, you can find it here.

    If you would like to see a map of your district, the National Atlas has a site with all 435 maps. Just go to this site and scroll down to your state and find your district.

    Say a few words, if you wish, about your member of Congress or the election campaign in your district. But the purpose of this thread is to help everybody identify their districts.

    MO-01, Missouri's 1st district, out of St. Louis. Our rep is Democrat Lacy Clay, a man I adore. http://www.house.gov/clay/

    He will definitely win his re-election, we are a democrat stronghold, I don't think he has any real challenger.

    OH-15



    Our current represtative is Deborah Pryce (R). She has served our district since 1992 and is ranked 4th in the House (deputy whip). While she is Republican, I don't consider her one of the more extreme republicans out there. She does not consider her party the "moral party" and has broken away from certain issues such as abortion and stem cell research. While she may not be perfect, I think she is certainly the better choice over Mary Jo Kilroy.

    IL-17

    Currently the representative is Lane Evans (D) who has been the representative since 1982. He is retiring this year because of his Parkinson's disease and I will update this with who got elected when the time comes.
    Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    The irony is a live only about 2 miles from OH-15 (Phillip's district). Gotta love gerrymandering.

I think that you all are blowing this way out of proportion.
