Voting in the 1st Congressional District

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) has been a vocal defender of the President Donald Trump and many of his policies. In 2014 he defeated Rep. Tim Bishop, a Democrat, to represent the First Congressional District, and won re-election in 2016, defeating Democrat Anna Throne-Holst 58 to 42 percent.

Trump won the district by about the same margin, defeating Hillary Clinton 54 percent to 42 percent in 2016. The voting pattern in the two races was similar, as seen in the election-district maps below.
