ⓘ 1892 Marylands 1st congressional district special election

Elections to the United States House of Representatives were held in 1892 for members of the 53rd Congress, taking place at the same time as the election of Grover Cleveland as President for the second, non-continuous, time, defeating incumbent Benjamin Harrison.

Despite the results of the President, the Republican party of Harrison gained back some of the places that have been lost in 1890 to the Democratic party, but was still in the deep minority. Republican pickups are the result of a number of Republican-friendly Northern regions returning to form after voting Democratic in the previous election cycle. The third party populists, who had high support among farmers and workers in the South and West, also received two seats.
