Sign in front of the McCracken, Kentucky Courthouse (in Paducah, Kentucky) commemorating early members of the U.S. House of Representatives representing Jackson Purchase (U.S. historical region).  The "First District" in the title actually changed over time. It refers to the Jackson Purchase, which was in the 5th district from 1819 to 1823, the 12th district until 1833, and then the 1st district until the end of the sign's lineage in 1855.
Sign in front of the McCracken, Kentucky Courthouse (in Paducah, Kentucky) commemorating early members of the U.S. House of Representatives representing Jackson Purchase (U.S. historical region). The "First District" in the title actually changed over time. It refers to the Jackson Purchase, which was in the 5th district from 1819 to 1823, the 12th district until 1833, and then the 1st district until the end of the sign's lineage in 1855.

Kentucky's 1st congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of Kentucky. Located in Western Kentucky, the district takes in Henderson, Hopkinsville, Madisonville, Paducah, and the college town of Murray.

The district is represented by Republican James Comer who won a special election to fill the seat of Rep. Ed Whitfield who resigned September 2016. Comer also won election to the regular term to begin January 3, 2017.

Characteristics

Although Democrats have an almost 2-to-1 edge in registration and still hold most local offices in the district, they tend to be very conservative on social issues, a trend which favors Republicans at the federal level.

As of September 2013, there were 505,870 registered voters: 302,406 (59.77%) Democrats, 174,137 (34.42%) Republicans, and 29,327 (5.80%) "Others". All of the "Others" included 21,711 (4.29%) unclassified Others, 7,011 (1.39%) Independents, 419 (0.08%) Libertarians, 93 (0.02%) Greens, 65 (0.01%) Constitutionalists, 19 (0.0038%) Reforms, and 9 (0.0018%) Socialist Workers.[5][6]

Until January 1, 2006, Kentucky did not track party affiliation for registered voters who were neither Democratic nor Republican.[7] The Kentucky voter registration card does not explicitly list anything other than Democratic Party, Republican Party, or Other, with the "Other" option having a blank line and no instructions on how to register as something else.[8]

Kentucky counties within the 1st Congressional District: Adair, Allen, Ballard, Caldwell, Calloway, Carlisle, Casey, Christian, Clinton, Crittenden, Cumberland, Fulton, Graves, Henderson, Hickman, Hopkins, Livingston, Logan, Lyon, Marshall, Marion, McCracken, McLean, Metcalfe, Monroe, Muhlenberg, Ohio, Russell, Simpson, Taylor, Todd, Trigg, Union, and Webster.
