The 2010 United States House of Representatives elections will be held on November 2, 2010 in the middle of President Barack Obama's first term in office. Contests will be held for all 435 seats representing the 50 United States. Additionally, elections will be held for the delegates from the District of Columbia and four of the five U.S. territories. The only seat in the House not up for election is that of the Resident Commissioner of Puerto Rico, who serves a four-year term and will next face election in 2012. However the seats for the House could change pending the passage of the District of Columbia House Voting Rights Act of 2009 (H.R. 157 and S. 160) in the United States House of Representatives. On February 26, 2009, the U.S. Senate passed S. 160 by a vote of 61-37.
The winners of this election cycle will serve in the 112th Congress
