It extends from the Wisconsin-Illinois border north to encompass southern Milwaukee and Waukesha counties. All of Kenosha an Racine counties are part of the 1st U.S. House District, as is the vast majority of Walworth county.

Steil is in his second year representing the 1st U.S. House District and seeking a second two-year term.
