United States House of Representatives elections, 1802

The U.S. House election, 1802 was an election for the United States House of Representatives in 1802.

With a number of new districts created due to a growing population west of the Appalachian Mountains, the House grew greatly prior to the 1802 elections. Nearly all of these new seats went to the Democratic-Republicans, the party that more closely aligned itself with the agrarian interests of Western farmers. As a result, the Democratic-Republicans were given a veto-proof supermajority in the House.
