Minnesota's congressional districts since 2013

Minnesota currently has eight congressional districts. There were 9th and 10th districts but they were eliminated in 1963 and 1933 respectively. Redistricting is done every 10 years to reflect population shifts. Minnesota statutes do not require candidates for the United States House of Representatives to reside in the district in which they run for office, but candidates must be inhabitants of the state at the time of the election.[1][2]

Districts[edit]

Districts were re-drawn in 2012. The 2010 elections determined the officials for the 2011–2013 term using 2002 districts, while the 2012 elections used the new districts. The 2002–2012 districts are described below:

District Political Leanings – 113th United States Congress
District 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th State
CPVI[3] R+1 R+2 R+2 D+11 D+22 R+10 R+6 D+1 D+2

Congressional districts are also used to ensure regional representation on other government bodies within the state. The following entities are required by state statute to have at least one member from each congressional district:
