About the Sixth District
While the Sixth District is diverse in its distance from point to point covering more square miles than nine states in the nation, it is unified by the hardworking and caring values of the people that live there.
The Sixth Congressional District in Missouri covers all of North Missouri, stretching along the top one-third of the state from river to river. South of the Missouri River, the district also encompasses part of Eastern Jackson County above Interstate 70 and parts of Blue Springs and Lee’s Summit below it.
