The 16th congressional district of Ohio is represented by Representative Jim Renacci (R). It also includes some rural communities east of Akron, as well as some of the western suburbs of Cleveland.

From 2003 to 2013 the district was based in Stark County and the Canton area and also included Wayne County and most of Medina and Ashland counties.

On November 2, 2010, John Boccieri lost his bid for a second term to Republican Jim Renacci, who was seated in January 2011. In January 2018, Renacci announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate. Anthony Gonzalez was elected on November 6th and is congressman-elect.
