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 5 Democrats and 9 Republicans.

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, with 9 Republicans and 5 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. For example, John Conyers' "Time in office" reflects his representation of Detroit-area districts since 1965, ignoring his 1st district's relocation to northern Michigan in 1993 and its replacement by the 13th district.
