ⓘ 1914 United States House of Representatives election in Wyoming

Elections to the United States House of Representatives in 1914 were held in the middle of President Woodrow Wilsons first term for members of the 64th Congress.

The opposition Republican party had recovered from the split through which they have passed during the presidential election of 1912, the party had more than 60 people from the Democratic party, but not enough to regain control of the body. An improved economy greatly helped the Republicans, who insisted on Pro-business principles and took credit for the successes that have been achieved in the industrial sector. Many progressive Republicans have joined the Republican party, but six were left under the Progressive party banner in the new Congress. In addition, William Kent was re-elected to Californias 1st constituency as an independent, and two minor parties were elected: Charles H. Randall, the prohibition party in California, the 9th electoral district, and Meyer London, the Socialist party in new Yorks 12th congressional district.
