If you enter "Wisconsin" in the By State search box and click Search, a map of the state of Wisconsin is divided into Wisconsin���s eight congressional districts. Above the map, view pictures of the eight Wisconsin congressional delegates and some basic biographical information. Click on the View District Map link for a detailed map of the selected representative���s congressional district.

Entering a ZIP code returns the representative���s name for that district plus a local district map. Click on the congressman���s name for detailed information and contact information. Some congressional districts span more than one ZIP code, so entering your address in the search information gives a more precise search result for your particular congressman.

GovTrack.us also provides information about pending legislation and offers a tracking tool. This tool may be used to track the votes of members of Congress or specific pieces of legislation.
