U.S. House of Representatives

Updated January 2013

 

All members of the House take an oath of office, required by Article 6 of the United States Constitution, to be bound to support the Constitution. On the first day of the new Congress, the newly elected Speaker of the House administers the following oath to all:

 

I, (name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

 

How many elected representatives take this oath with full knowledge of what it means to hold true to it? Furthermore, how many take the oath with no intention of fulfilling it?

 

These instant lookup reference pages take considerable time and careful research to put together. They are provided as a service to the readers of this site. If any mistakes are found, I would appreciate a quick note via the feedback link at the end of this page.

 

Article 1, Section 2 of the United States Constitution provides for the minimum and maximum sizes for the House of Representatives.

 

The current size of the House of Representatives was established by Public Law 62-5 on August 8, 1911 and took effect in 1913. That size stands at 435 members.

 

The name of each Representative in the table at the left is a link to his or her official website if one exists. There are only a few who do not have very informative sites established. For those few, the link will take you to a listing of their contact information addresses and phone numbers. Please scroll down through the following tables to identify your representatives in the U.S. House Of Representatives. More informative information exists after these tables. Deb V

 

Representatives are elected every two years and 2014 is the next election year.
