North Carolina's 6th congressional district is located in north central portion of the state and borders Virginia. As a result of reapportionment following the 2010 census, the district was shifted northward by the Redistricting Committee of the NC Senate. The 6th district includes portions of Guilford, Alamance, Durham, Granville, and Orange counties, and all of Caswell, Person, Rockingham, Surry, and Stokes counties.

The district is represented by Howard Coble, a Republican. He has held this position since 1985. In the 2006 Elections, he defeated Democrat Rory Blake for reelection.

History[edit]

From 2003 to 2013 the 6th District comprised all of Moore and Randolph counties and portions of Alamance, Davidson, Guilford, and Rowan counties.
