The 1942 United States House of Representatives elections was held in the middle of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's third term. The main factor that led to the Republican gains during this election cycle was concern over World War II and American involvement. Roosevelt's Democratic Party lost 45 seats, retaining only a slender majority even though they lost the popular vote by over 1 million votes (3.9%). This would not occur again until 1952, when the party who won the popular vote did not also win the majority of the House of Representatives.

  • 1942년 미국 하원의원 선거는 1942년 11월 3일에서 1942년 미국 상원의원 선거와 같이 치뤄졌다. 민주당은 과반을 차지하지만 득표에선 패배한다.
  • Am 3. November 1942 wurden in den Vereinigten Staaten die Abgeordneten des Repräsentantenhauses gewählt. Im Bundesstaat Maine fanden die Wahlen bereits am 14. September statt. Die Wahl war Teil der allgemeinen Wahlen zum 78. Kongress der Vereinigten Staaten in jenem Jahr, bei denen auch ein Drittel der US-Senatoren gewählt wurden. Da die Wahlen etwa in der Mitte der dritten Amtszeit des Demokratischen Präsidenten Franklin D. Roosevelt stattfanden (Midterm Election), galten sie auch als Votum über die bisherige Politik des Präsidenten. Die Wahl war von den Ereignissen des Zweiten Weltkriegs überschattet. Kriegsbedingt gab es auch mehr Briefwähler durch die Soldaten, die sich außer Landes im Kriegseinsatz befanden.
