Michigan's congressional districts since 2013[1]

Michigan is divided into 14 congressional districts, each represented by a member of the United States House of Representatives.[2]

The districts are currently represented in the 115th United States Congress by 4 Democrats, 9 Republicans, and 1 seat is vacant.

Current districts and representatives[edit]

List of members of the Michigan United States House delegation, their time in office, district maps, and the districts' political ratings according to the CPVI. The delegation has a total of 14 members, although one of those seats is vacant. Of the remaining members, there are 9 Republicans and 4 Democrats.

"Time in office" reflects each member's time since becoming a U.S. Representative, not the member's time since becoming a representative for his current district; redistricting commonly results in a district being moved elsewhere in the state and its representative beginning to represent a different district in the same location.
