The Representation of the People Act 1928 is an act of parliament of the United Kingdom. This act expanded on the act of the same name of a decade earlier.

Prior to this act only women over 30 who met minimum property qualifications could vote.

This statute is sometimes known as the Fifth Reform Act.
