Hawaii Territory's at-large congressional district

Hawaii Territory, 1898–1959

Hawaii Territory's at-large congressional district was the congressional district for the Territory of Hawaii, which was established by the Newlands Resolution of 1898. On April 30, 1900, the Hawaiian Organic Act gave the Territory of Hawaii the authority to elect a single non-voting Congressional delegate.[1][2]

After Hawaii's admission to the Union as the 50th state by act of Congress on August 21, 1959, this district was replaced by Hawaii's at-large congressional district.
