Need to add Congressional districts or Senator and Representative contact information to addresses in bulk? You're in the right place.
This article shows you how to add Congressional districts to addresses using Geocodio. The Congressional district data returned includes Congressional district number, Congress number, and Congress years, with the option to append legislator data. You can use our API to integrate it into a website, or upload Excel, CSV, and TSV files.
With Geocodio, you can choose to just get the raw data back (via spreadsheet or API), or view the addresses on a map with Congressional district outlines.
If you just need the Congressional districts and Senator/Representative contact information for one address, you can use the tool below. Just check the box next to ‘Congressional Districts’, then click ‘show results.’
The first step will be to organize the addresses into a spreadsheet. Your spreadsheet will need to have headers (street, city, state or street + zip). The addresses can all be in one column or in multiple columns, as shown below, as long as it is consistent for the entire spreadsheet.
Multiple column format:
| Street | City | State | ZIP | | ------------------- | -------- | ----- | ----- | | 960 Orange Avenue | Coronado | CA | | | 2050 N Stemmons Fwy | Dallas | TX | | | 5020 E Sprague Ave | | | 99212 |
| Address | | ----------------------------- | | 960 Orange Avenue Coronado CA | | 2050 N Stemmons Fwy Dallas TX | | 5020 E Sprague Ave 99212 |
However, the formats cannot be mixed, as below:
| Location | | | ----------------------------- | ----- | | 960 Orange Avenue Coronado CA | | | 45.5045128,-73.621345 | | | 5020 E Sprague Ave | 99212 |
You can also download an example spreadsheet here. The addresses can be missing information as long as they are all consistently formatted. For example, you can have street + zip for some addresses and street + city + state for others.
Once your spreadsheet is organized, you can upload it directly to Geocodio. After confirming the columns and seeing a preview of the file on a map, you will be presented with options to append data. You will want to check the box that says “Congressional Districts”, with the option to include Senate and Representative info. Counties are included by default with geocoding.
Results are billed as geocode + Congressional district info (i.e., two lookups). For example, if you have 100 addresses that you want Congressional districts for, that would count as 200 lookups. You can calculate how much this will cost you and how long it will take here.
You will receive an email when your spreadsheet is done processing -- no need to stay on the page.
