Elections to the United States House of Representatives in Florida were held for three seats in the 58th Congress on November 4, 1902.

Background[edit]

Since 1872, Florida had been apportioned 2 seats in the House of Representatives. After the 1900 census, Florida was apportioned a third Representative. Going into the 1902 elections, Florida was represented by two Democrats, one who'd been elected in 1894, and the second in 1896. Both incumbents ran for re-election, while the new 3rd district was an open seat.

Election results[edit]
