    Check with the US census - if their census tract matches your district, you're golden.

    Failing that, an inventory of houses would prove productive. Odds are in a rural community you have some idea of how many live in a given house, so the math gets easy.

    Any of the satellite map sites (Google, Acme Mapper, etc) should be useful for such an inventory, unless you want to drive all around your district. Besides, I know that in my district, I'd miss a lot of houses that are not visible from the road.
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.
