Rogers was elected as a Democrat to the Sixty-eighth Congress (March 4, 1923 – March 3, 1925). He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1924 to the Sixty-ninth Congress. He resumed the practice of his profession in Concord, New Hampshire. He was Moderator of the town of Wakefield, New Hampshire from 1928 to 1945.

He was not a candidate for renomination, but was an unsuccessful candidate for election to the United States Senate in 1936.

He resumed the practice of law in Concord until 1943, when he moved to Sanbornville, and continued practice until his death in Wolfeboro, September 25, 1945. He was interred in Lovell Lake Cemetery, Sanbornville.
