New Jersey's Ninth Congressional District is a district that consists largely of Bergen County and Passaic County municipalities. Due to redistricting following the 2010 Census, parts of the old 9th District were shifted to the Fifth District and the new Eighth District, as part of a reduction in congressional districts from 13 to 12 in New Jersey.

The Ninth District is represented by Democrat Bill Pascrell, who resides in Paterson. Congressman Pascrell was first elected to Congress in 1996 from the old Eighth District, defeating incumbent William J. Martini. The redistricting resulted in Pascrell's hometown of Paterson was added to the Ninth District, which had been represented by Steve Rothman, a fellow Democrat who like Pascrell entered Congress by winning a seat in the 1996 federal election. Both incumbents declared their intentions to run for their party's nomination for the seat, which Pascrell won. Pascrell defeated Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, the Republican nominee, in the general election.
