Rep. Gregorio Sablan

Delegate from the Northern Mariana Islands’s At-Large District, Independent

Sablan, an Independent, has been the delegate from the Northern Mariana Islands since Jan 6, 2009 (next election in 2016).

Because the Northern Mariana Islands is a territory of the United States, and not a state, it has no senators or representatives in Congress. Instead it sends a delegate to the House of Representatives with essentially no voting privileges. Delegates have a marginal role in Congress and their constituents are not represented in Congress in the same manner as most citizens.
