New Members Sworn In
115th Congress Begins
They won their elections on November 8th, 2016, and officially transitioned from candidates to Members-elect of the United States House of Representatives. One week after the election, more than 50 Members-elect traveled to Capitol Hill for New Member Orientation.
Before they were sworn in on January 3, 2017, these Members-elect established their Congressional District and Washington, D.C., offices and hired staff. All of this goes on while the Members-elect worked with their colleagues to prepare for the legislative business of the 115th Congress.
More details about the make-up of the House of Representatives is available from the Clerk of the House.
