Indiana's delegation to the United States House of Representatives starting with the 112th Congress
  Democratic incumbent
  Republican incumbent

Since its statehood in 1816, the U.S. state of Indiana has sent congressional delegations to the United States Senate and United States House of Representatives. Each state elects two Senators statewide to serve for six years, and their elections are staggered to be held in two of every three even-numbered years—Indiana's Senate election years are to Classes I and III. Before the Seventeenth Amendment in 1913, Senators were elected by the Indiana General Assembly. Members of the House of Representatives are elected to two-year terms, one from each of Indiana's nine congressional districts. Before becoming a state, the Indiana Territory elected delegates at-large and sent three to Congress, but the territorial delegates were restricted from voting on legislation.

The longest-serving of any of Indiana's Congressmen is Senator Richard Lugar, serving from 1977 to 2013. The longest-serving House member is Lee H. Hamilton, who served from 1965 to 1999. There have been 346 people who have represented Indiana in Congress: 320 in the House, 27 in the Senate, and 18 in both houses, with an average term of seven years. Indiana has elected seven women[1] and three African Americans[2] to Congress.

Indiana's current delegation (as of December 13, 2013)

United States Senate[edit]

Each state elects two senators by statewide popular vote every six years. The terms of the two senators are staggered so that they are not elected in the same year. Indiana's senators are elected in the years from classes I and III. Senators were originally chosen by the Indiana General Assembly until the Seventeenth Amendment came into force in 1913.[3][4]

Of the forty-five men who have been Senators from Indiana, there have been three Democratic-Republicans, three Adams Republicans (including James Noble, who was both a Democratic-Republican and Adams Republican), two Whigs, one Unionist, twenty-one Democrats, and sixteen Republicans. Only 45 men have been Senators, though 48 terms have been served; David Turpie, William E. Jenner, and Dan Coats served nonconsecutive terms.

Indiana's Senators in the 113th Congress are Democrat Joe Donnelly, first elected in 2012, and Republican Dan Coats, elected to a second non-consecutive term in 2010.

Indiana Territory was formed on July 4, 1800, out of the Northwest Territory and consisted of present-day Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, and parts of Michigan and Minnesota. Michigan Territory was split from the territory on June 30, 1805, and Illinois Territory followed on March 1, 1809, leaving Indiana Territory with its final borders except for a slight adjustment of its northern border when statehood was granted.[19] On December 11, 1816, Indiana was admitted to the Union as a state.

The territorial delegates were elected to two-year terms. Delegates were allowed to serve on committees, debate, and submit legislation, but were not permitted to vote on bills.[20] Delegates only served in the House of Representatives as there was no representation in the Senate until Indiana became a state.

Representatives from the state of Indiana[edit]

Members of the House of Representatives are elected every two years by popular vote within a congressional district. Indiana has nine congressional districts—this number is reapportioned based on the state's population, determined every ten years by a census. Indiana had a maximum representation of 13 congressmen from 1873 to 1933. Since 2003 Indiana has had nine representatives, which was reduced from ten after the 2000 census. This gives Indiana the fourteenth-largest delegation; during the period from 1853 to 1873 the state had the fifth-largest delegation.

The state of Indiana has been represented by 320 people in the House, including one who was previously a territorial delegate. Indiana's current House delegation in the 113th Congress includes Republicans Susan Brooks, Luke Messer, Larry Bucshon, Todd Rokita, Todd Young, Jackie Walorski, and Marlin Stutzman, and Democrats Pete Visclosky and André Carson.
