Indiana's 2nd congressional district is a legislative electoral area in north central Indiana. With a heavy white population, it includes South Bend and Elkhart.

The district is currently represented by Republican Jackie Walorski.

History

Prior to 2002, the 2nd Congressional District covered east central Indiana, including most of the territory now in the 6th District. However, following the 2000 U.S. Census redistricting, the district was moved to replace most of what had been the 3rd District. [Almost all Indiana's districts have changed substantially, and most became more compact, since the redistricting following the 2010 census; - see http://www.in.gov/legislative/house_republicans/rd/pdfs/Congressional.pdf]
