2002 Texas US House.svg

The 2002 United States House of Representatives elections in Texas occurred on November 5, 2002, to elect the members of the state of Texas's delegation to the United States House of Representatives. Texas had thirty-two seats in the House, apportioned according to the 2000 United States Census. The state gained two seats in reapportionment.[1] The divided Texas Legislature failed to redraw the state's congressional districts in line with this new apportionment, so the task was sent to the Legislative Redistricting Board.[2] A federal court in Balderas v. State of Texas ordered the adoption of the lines used in the 2002 elections.[3]

These elections occurred simultaneously with the United States Senate elections of 2002, the United States House elections in other states, and various state and local elections. As of 2021, this is the last time the Democratic Party won a majority of congressional districts from Texas.
