Florida's 3rd Congressional District

About This Map

Congresswoman Corrine Brown, an African-American Democrat from Florida, represents one of the most irregularly shaped districts in the nation. It is made up of heavily African-American neighborhoods in Jacksonville, Gainesville and Orlando which are connected by a large, sparsely populated corridor that includes most of Ocala National Forest. To protect this district against a pair of anti-gerrymandering amendments, Brown served as African-American chairwoman of Protect Your Vote; a group funded in part by Honeywell and CSX Transportation.
