A look at the voting history of Alabama’s 3rd Congressional District


For over a century Alabama’s 3rd Congressional District was a solid blue district in U.S. House of Representatives, but in 1997 the district flipped red and it’s not come close to changing back since then.

Located in eastern Alabama, the district includes Calhoun, Chambers, Clay, Cleburne, Lee, Macon, Randolph, Russell, St. Clair, Talladega, and Tallapoosa counties as well as portions of Cherokee and Montgomery counties.

Since 2003 Rep. Mike Rogers has held the seat. Rogers was first elected in 2002 when Bob Riley successfully ran for governor and left the 3rd district vacant. Prior to that he was a member a member of the Alabama State House of Representatives, and a member of the Calhoun County Commission before that.

In the 2018 General Election, Rogers faces political newcomer, former Miss America Mallory Hagan. Prior to her Congressional run, Hagan, an Opelika, Ala. native, worked as co-anchor of the evening newscast on WLTZ in Columbus, Ga.

FiveThirtyEight, a statistics-driven news-and-analysis site, anticipates Rogers easily winning the 3rd District yet again.
