This is a list of special elections to the Minnesota House of Representatives. Such elections are called by the Governor of Minnesota to fill the vacancies that occur when a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives dies or resigns before the biennial general election. Winners of these elections serve the remainder of the term and are usually candidates in the next general election for their districts.

The general elections are held in November of even numbered years. New Legislatures convene on the first Tuesday following the first Monday of the following year.
