Represented By A Republican?

Travis County is one of the most gerrymandered places in the nation.

Parts of five congressional districts are located in Travis County, yet none of them has a majority of its residents or votes in Travis County. This means that despite overwhelming support for Democratic candidates at all levels of government, most Austin residents are represented by Republicans at the national level.
