Ohio's 11th congressional district is represented by Representative Marcia Fudge, a Democrat, having been elected after the death of Stephanie Tubbs Jones. This district includes an area from Cleveland to Akron.

Ohio has had at least 11 congressional districts since the 1820 Census. The district's current configuration dates from the 1990 Census, when most of the old 21st District was combined with portions of the old 20th District to form the new 11th District. Much of Akron, Ohio added to the district when the congressional map was redrawn after the 2010 Census, when Ohio lost two seats in the House of Representatives.

With a Cook Partisan Voting Index of D+30, it is the most Democratic district in Ohio and the 19th most Democratic district in the nation.

Recent History

Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones served from 1999 through August 20, 2008, when she died in office. Ohio Governor Ted Strickland ordered a special election on November 18, 2008 to fill the remaining month of Jones' term. In addition, the seat was up for election during the November 4, 2008 general election, with the winner of that election to serve a full term beginning January 6, 2009. Marcia L. Fudge, the mayor of Warrensville Heights, just east of Cleveland, won both the general and special elections and was sworn in on November 19, 2008.
