Oregon's new 6th Congressional District

On September 28, Oregon approved its redistricting maps based on 2020 census data and created a new Congressional District for the first time in 40 years: the 6th Congressional District for Oregon. It's the district I live in, and it's the district I'm running to represent. (In Oregon, there's no law that requires a candidate for Congress to live in their district!)


The district stretches along (mostly) the west side of Interstate 5 from Portland all the way down to just south of Independence. It tapers to a point in Portland but stretches west just about to the Salmon River as it gets farther south. The cities of Salem, McMinnville, Independence, Dallas, and Keizer are pretty well covered, but there are a lot of voters in cities that straddle the district line.


For a good interactive map of the district, head to this link, provided by the Legislature:

Then find the menu on the left side of your screen and click on the "Content" button:

Then find the line for "Adopted Maps" and expand it by clicking the little triangle to the left of the checkbox. Select "Congress (SB 881A)" and the map should display the district lines.

You can zoom in as close as you like, so if you live in a place like Beaverton or Lake Oswego where the district lines cut through the city, you'll be able to find your house and see if you live in our new Congressional District 6!


If you do, I hope to earn your vote!
