Historical district boundaries

2003 - 2013

The 5th Congressional District in MO has historically included most of Jackson County and parts of neighboring counties made up of urban and suburban areas. After the 2010 Census, the district was redrawn to exclude the house of Jacob Turk, Emanuel Cleaver's political rival who came close to unseating the Congressman in 2010. Despite numerous public forums and over the overwhelming objection of nearly all the citizens who participated, the new district excluding the "Turk Peninsula" was approved. In order to replace the lost population of the Turk Peninsula, three rural counties were added to the 5th district.
