Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District covers 12 counties located in central Iowa, from Polk County in the west to Benton and Iowa Counties in the east, and Grundy County in the north to Lucas and Monroe Counties in the south. The district is home to 622,000 Iowans, with 65 percent living in Polk County.
