Oklahoma's 6th Congressional District

Oklahoma's 6th congressional district is a former congressional district in western Oklahoma. Oklahoma gained 3 seats in the 1910 census, but elected the extra seats at-large in 1912. The 6th district was thus created and first used for the 1914 House election. Oklahoma has gradually lost seats since the 1910 census, and lost its 6th seat in the 2000 census. Since 2003, most of the territory that was in the final configuration of the 6th District has been in the 3rd district.
