Earlier this year, U.S. Representative Marcia Fudge − the Warrensville Heights Democrat who represented Ohio's 11th District since 2008 − was confirmed as the 18th Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The vacancy allows voters to choose a new representative in special elections slated for August 3 and November 2.
District 11 is one of two majority-minority Ohio districts protected under the Voting Rights Act of 1965. It encompasses much of Cleveland, its eastern suburbs, a western portion of Akron, and about 30 cities.
