ⓘ 1906 United States House of Representatives election in Wyoming

Elections to the United States House of Representatives in 1906 were held for members of the 60th Congress, in the middle of President Theodore Roosevelts second term.

As in many midterm elections for the presidency of the Republican party has lost seats to the opposition Democratic party but retained a large absolute majority. Dissatisfaction with working conditions and resentment against the undermining of the trade unions among industrial workers in the mid-Atlantic and Midwest caused these groups to turn to the sites in large numbers in support of the Democratic party. However, the success in these areas was not enough to remove the Republican majority or the firm support which the party held among the middle class.
