Utah's congressional districts

Utah is divided into 4 heavily-gerrymandered congressional districts, each represented by a member of the United States House of Representatives. Evident in this map, the reliably blue Salt Lake City metro area has been split into quadrants intended to shift power to the reliably conservative, rural areas of the state. After the 2010 Census, Utah gained one House seat, and a new map was approved by the state legislature and signed into law by Governor Gary Herbert.[2] [3]

Utah's congressional districts since 2013[1]

The districts are currently represented in the 116th United States Congress by their elected congresspeople. In 2018, a Democratic challenger defeated a Republican incumbent, and changed the congressional delegation to a 3-1 Republican majority. As a result, the 4th district is the most Republican district that is currently held by a Democrat.
