Maryland's at-large congressional seat

After the 1960 census, Maryland was apportioned an eighth representative, an increase of one over its 1950-1960 apportionment. From 1963 to 1967, the state kept the seven districts it had used since 1953 and used an at-large representative. After 1967, however, eight districts were drawn and the at-large district was eliminated.

Democrat Carlton R. Sickles was the sole at-large representative.
