ⓘ 1900 United States House of Representatives elections in Wisconsin

Elections to the United States House of Representatives were held in 1900 for members of the 57th Congress, coinciding with the re-election of President William McKinley.

The Republican party McKinleys received thirteen seats from the Democratic party and minor parties, cementing their majority. The revival of Republican control in the Mid-Atlantic was key in the growth of new places. However, with the improvement of the economy, especially in the industrial sector, the election cycle featured no keystone issue, resulting in an overall support for the status quo. The fading populist party held on to five house seats, while the sole member of the silver party changed parties to Democratic. It was the last time a third party went to the election with the house leader of the party. All subsequent third parties to serve in the house will not choose the party leader.
