Oklahoma's 7th Congressional district was a district that existed from 1915 through 1953.

History[edit]

After the 1910 Census, Oklahoma was apportioned three new seats in addition to its five seats. Initially, for the years 1913 through 1915, Oklahoma elected those three new representatives at-large statewide. But starting with the 1914 election (for a term beginning in 1915), the state redistricted its eight seats, thereby adding a 6th district, 7th district, and 8th district

Oklahoma lost this seat in after the 1950 census reapportioned the state with only six seats.
