Voter Information

Oregon will receive a sixth congressional district in 2022. This will require at least some of Oregon’s other congressional district boundaries to shift. New district maps will change the counties associated with each district. The Secretary will update this list to reflect the new district boundaries, once the maps are final.

The new House District 6 in Oregon consists of Polk County and Yamhill County, in addition to portions of Marion County, Clackamas County, and Washington County.

Gov. Kate Brown signed new state legislative maps into law on Sept. 27, 2021. The maps were approved by the Oregon House of Representatives 31-18, and approved in the Oregon State Senate 18-11. These maps take effect for Oregon’s 2022 legislative elections. (from Ballotpedia).

The Douglas County Clerk’s office will be updating local precinct lines in January.
