- Oregon's congressional districts
The U.S. state of Oregon has had five United States congressional districts since 1982, when the Fifth District was added. Boundaries were redrawn following the population changes to each district as determined by the 1990, 2000, and 2010 Censuses. Although early projections suggested that Oregon might gain a sixth congressional district as a result of the 2010 Census, the state's population was about 42,000 people short of gaining a new district.
District 1 is in the northwest corner of the state and includes some of the Portland metropolitan area. It includes Clatsop County, Columbia County, Washington County, Yamhill County, and part of Multnomah County.
The district is currently without a Representative due to the resignation of Democrat David Wu.
District 2 is the largest of Oregon's districts — and the seventh largest district in the nation — covering roughly two-thirds of the state east of the Willamette Valley. It includes all of Baker, Crook, Deschutes, Gilliam, Grant, Harney, Hood River, Jackson, Jefferson, Klamath, Lake, Malheur, Morrow, Sherman, Umatilla, Union, Wallowa, Wasco, Wheeler counties and part of eastern Josephine County, including some of the Grants Pass area.
The district has been represented by Republican Greg Walden since 1999.
Following the 2010 census, the district boundaries were changed slightly to add Downtown Portland from the 1st district and southwestern Multnomah County from the 5th district, and move part of Multnomah County near Mount Scott and part of northwestern Clackamas County (including most of the city of Milwaukie) to the 5th district.
The district has been represented by Democrat Earl Blumenauer since 1996.
The district has been represented by Democrat Peter A. DeFazio since 1987.
District 5 stretches from the central coast through the state capital into southern suburbs of Portland and part of the summit of Mount Hood. It includes Lincoln County, Marion County, Polk County, Tillamook County, part of Benton County, the southern part of Clackamas County, and a small portion of Multnomah County near Mount Scott.
Following the 2010 census, the district boundaries were changed slightly to add part of Multnomah County near Mount Scott and northwestern Clackamas County (including most of the city of Milwaukie) from the 3rd district, and move southwestern Multnomah County to the 3rd district.
The district has been represented by Democrat Kurt Schrader since 2009.
