Georgia's 11th congressional district is congressional district in the U.S. state of Georgia. The district is currently represented by Republican Phil Gingrey, though the district's boundaries have been redrawn following the 2010 census, which granted an additional congressional seat to Georgia.[3] The first election using the new district boundaries (listed below) were the 2012 congressional elections.

Located in the northwestern portion of the Atlanta metropolitan area, the district includes Cartersville, Marietta, and Woodstock.[4]
