Iowa's Congressional districts since 2013.[1]

Iowa is divided into four congressional districts, each represented by a member of the United States House of Representatives.

The districts were previously represented by 1 Democrat and 3 Republicans since 2014, however, after the 2018 elections, 2 Republican incumbents were ousted by Democratic challengers, flipping the congressional delegation to 3-1 Democratic majority.
