2004 United States House of Representatives elections

  (Redirected from U.S. House election, 2004)

Elections to the United States House of Representatives for the 109th Congress were held on November 2, 2004. The House of Representatives has 435 seats. It coincided with the reelection of President George W. Bush. In the 108th Congress, Republicans held 227 seats, Democrats held 205, with two Republican vacancies and one independent. As a result of this election, the 109th Congress began composed of 232 Republicans, 201 Democrats, one independent (who caucuses with the Democrats), and one vacancy (Democratic Representative Bob Matsui won reelection, but died on January 1, 2005, just two days before the beginning of the 109th Congress.). The Republicans thereby built up their House majority by 3 seats (gaining 8 but losing 5).

Summary of party change of U.S. house seats in the 2004 House election.
  1-2 Democratic seat pickup
  1-2 Republican seat pickup
  3-5 Republican seat pickup

Democrats gained open seats in Colorado, South Dakota (through a 2004 special election) and New York and ousting incumbents in Georgia and Illinois. Republicans gained an open seat in Kentucky and ousted an incumbent in Indiana. A pair of seats in Louisiana swapped party control. Republicans gained several redistricted seats in Texas.

As of 2019, this is the last election in which someone who was not from the Democratic or Republican party was elected to the House. This is also the most recent election in which Republicans made a net gain of seats in the House during a Presidential election year.

On the same date were the 2004 presidential election, U.S. Senate elections, and many state gubernatorial elections.
