Oregon remains on track to gain a sixth congressional district in 2020, according to an analysis of new data released by the U.S. Census Bureau on Tuesday.
“If we take those estimates and project them to 2020, we can then see what things might look like in four years,” said Kimball Brace, president of political consulting firm Election Data Services.
“At that point in time, Oregon is still secure in gaining its additional seat.”
Congressional districts are based on the U.S. Census, which is taken every decade. The next census will be done in 2020.
