The 1888 South Carolina United States House of Representatives elections were held on November 6, 1888 to select seven Representatives for two-year terms from the state of South Carolina. All seven incumbents were initially reported as re-elected and the composition of the state delegation remained solely Democratic, however Thomas E. Miller successfully contested the result in the 7th congressional district, claiming voter suppression of black Republican votes.
