So I had this immigration test coming up in a few days, and one of the questions was “Who is Your US Representative?”, which the app that I’m using tells me is Louie Gohmert. I’ve never heard of the guy, so I google him and sure enough, he’s a US Representative from Texas First Congressional District. It’s weird that I’ve never seen or heard the name before so I dig deeper.
So there are 435 US Representatives, and each one represents a Congressional District. So the question simply becomes, which US Congressional District am I in? Luckily, there’s a site which shows you that. It allows you to slap in your street address, and then after giving you some warnings that the mapping of street addresses to latitude and longitude is iffy, it then attempts to place your address in a district, and bingo, spits out a representative.
To double check, I went to the list of representatives by district, and scrolled down to see the 36 House Representatives for Texas and there they all were. Allegedly, the address above is in District 25 and Roger Williams is my man. Not Louie. I’m glad I checked. You can also find out your State’s US Senators there.
