West Virginia's 6th congressional district

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

West Virginia's 6th congressional district is an obsolete district existing from 1917 to 1963. The district's bounds changed greatly over the years, but its last version focused on the capital city of Charleston and some safe Democratic territory running south of that city to Beckley. Today Beckley is part of the 3rd District and Charleston is part of the 2nd District.


The Sixth District was formed in 1916 after a period of two elections where the state elected an additional congressman "at large" in addition to the districts formed in 1902. It consisted of Kanawha, Boone, Raleigh, Fayette, Greenbrier, and Pocahontas counties. In practical effect, it was the core of the previous 3rd District. In 1934, Fayette, Greenbrier, and Pocahontas were removed and Logan was added. The district was unchanged for 1952, and was abolished in 1962.
