South Carolina's congressional districts


South Carolina's congressional districts

There are currently six United States congressional districts in South Carolina based on results from the United States 2000 Census. There have been as few as four and as many as nine congressional districts in South Carolina. The ushr|South Carolina|9|9th district and the ushr|South Carolina|8|8th district were lost after the 1840 Census. The ushr|South Carolina|7|7th district was last lost after the 1930 Census. Given the state's recent population growth, it is likely that South Carolina will regain a 7th district after the 2010 Census. The ushr|South Carolina|5|5th district and the ushr|South Carolina|6|6th district were briefly lost after the Civil War, but both had been regained by the 1880 Census.

Republicans currently hold 4 seats while Democrats hold 2 seats.
