The First Congressional District includes 24 counties in central and eastern North Carolina.  Stretching from the City of Durham in the west to Elizabeth City in the east, our district is home to major commerce hubs and rural agricultural communities.

Congressman Butterfield is proud that the First District is home to Seymour Johnson Air Force Base and to represent many of the families working at Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City and Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point.

Congressman Butterfield is excited to represent Barton College, Duke University, East Carolina University, Elizabeth City State University, Mount Olive College, and North Carolina Central University as well as many community colleges across the region.
