Michigan Territory's at-large congressional district is an obsolete congressional district that encompassed the area of the Michigan Territory prior to admitting Michigan to the Union. The territory was established on June 30, 1805, from Indiana Territory. In 1819, the territory was given the authority to elect a congressional delegate until statehood in 1837.
