California's 2nd congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of California.

Jared Huffman, a Democrat, has represented the district since January 2013.

Currently, the 2nd district encompasses the northern coast of the state. It stretches from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Oregon border and includes all of Highway 101 north of San Francisco except for a stretch in Sonoma County. It consists of Marin, Mendocino, Humboldt, Del Norte, and Trinity counties plus portions of Sonoma County. Cities in the district include San Rafael, Petaluma, Novato, Windsor, Healdsburg, Ukiah, Fort Bragg, Fortuna, Eureka, Arcata, McKinleyville, and Crescent City, California.[5]

Prior to redistricting by the California Citizens Redistricting Commission of 2011, the 2nd district encompassed much of the far northern part of the state, from Sacramento to the Oregon border. It was the largest district by area in California. It consisted of Colusa, Glenn, Sutter, Tehama, Trinity, and Yuba counties plus portions of Butte and Yolo counties. Much of this territory is now the 1st District, while the 6th District covered most of the territory now in the 2nd District.
