|Elections in Alaska|
The 2010 congressional election in Alaska was held on November 2, 2010 to determine who will represent the state of Alaska in the United States House of Representatives. Alaska has one seat in the House, apportioned according to the 2000 United States Census.
Alaska's At-large congressional district has covered the entire state since it was established in 1959. The state has been represented in the U.S. House by Republican Don Young since winning a special election in 1973. Due to recent controversies, Young was almost defeated in the 2008 primary by Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell. In the general election, polling showed Democratic nominee Ethan Berkowitz leading Young up to the election. However, Young won by a margin of 16,000 votes.
