House of Representatives

Minnesota is partitioned into 8 congressional districts that define the areas represented by each Minnesota member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Olmsted county is in the First Congressional District (a.k.a. CD1). Boundaries of each district may be redrawn every 10 years, based on the national census. Each district is defined so as to have roughly the same population. All members of the U.S. House of Representatives are elected every two years.
