ⓘ 1908 United States House of Representatives election in Wyoming

Elections to the United States House of Representatives in 1908 were held for members of the 61st Congress, coinciding with the 1908 presidential election, which William Howard Taft won.

Taft was not as popular as its predecessor, Theodore Roosevelt, but won with Roosevelts support, and his Republican party lost only a handful of seats, the opposition Democrats. Without any striking national issues, the Republicans managed to keep control. Regional issues led to some changes in the composition of the house, but the new Democrats who were elected are dissatisfied industrial workers were balanced out by new Republicans who won seats in areas with a strong middle class.
