Oregon's 4th congressional district represents the southern half of Oregon's coastal counties, including Coos, Curry, Douglas, Lane, and Linn counties and most of Benton and Josephine counties.

It is centered around the state's two college towns, Eugene and Corvallis, homes to the University of Oregon and Oregon State University, respectively. Politically, the district leans slightly Democratic due almost entirely to the presence of Lane County, home to almost half the district's population.

The district has been represented by Democrat Peter DeFazio since 1987.
