Oregon's 1st congressional district consists of the northwest corner of Oregon. It includes Clatsop, Columbia, Washington, and Yamhill counties, and southwest Portland, part of Multnomah County, which belonged to the 3rd district before the 2002 redistricting.

The district had been represented by Democrat David Wu since 1999, but Wu resigned from his seat on August 3, 2011 in the wake of accusations of sexual misconduct.[1] A special election has been called for January 31, 2012, with party primaries to occur beforehand on November 8, 2011.[2]
