* Race percentages are calculated with data from the Secretary of State's Office, which omits write-in votes from its calculations when there are too few to affect the outcome. The Spokane County Auditor's Office may have slightly different percentages than are reflected here because its figures include any write-in votes.
This district encompasses Shoshone County, traditionally among the few Democratic counties in the state and the bastion of the old-time “lunchbucket” Democrats. But in recent years this district has swung more to the GOP. Rep. Mary Lou Shepherd, D-Prichard, the last remaining Democrat representing the district, is seeking a seventh term.
