Once the ZIP code is provided, the House website conducts the user to a page that lists the exact district, all the possible representatives connected with that district and their parties of affiliation. For example, if the resident lives in Stokes County, the appropriate ZIP code entry is 27016. As of 2015, the site then produces a page identifying the Sixth District and naming Republican Mark Walker as the congressional delegate, along with select video and email links. An interactive map visually displays the Sixth District itself.

Another option is to visit the research site at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, which offers a detailed interactive map of all the outlined districts and their correlating numbers. Above the interactive map is a printable map illustrating all the districts, the current members, their parties and their contact information in Washington D.C. The map can be printed in either letter or tabloid sizes. The site also provides a clickable lists of North Carolina's members of Congress.
