U.S. House Federal Office

Elections: 1857-present. Minnesota elected its U.S. Representatives at-large for its first three cycles through 1860, for one seat in 1912, and for all nine seats in 1932. Congressional primaries began in 1902 in the state. The Minnesota U.S. House delegation began with two seats at statehood (1858-1873), increased to three seats (1873-1883), five seats (1883-1893), seven seats (1893-1903), nine seats (1903-1913), and peaked at ten seats (1913-1933). The delegation then shrunk to nine seats (1933-1963) and eight seats (1963-present). There have only been five special U.S. House elections in state history: in 1919 (4th CD), 1929 (5th CD, 7th CD), 1958 (1st CD), and 1977 (7th CD).
