Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Congressional districts do not "respect" zip code boundaries. It is
possible that one zip code can straddle two(likely) or (unlikely)
three districts. I am not sure that even going to the zip plus four
level of detail will work for you.
Let us know what you come up with as a solution, please.
