The 2024 House elections are just around the corner. Like the races for Senate and President, speculation has already begun over how the electoral math will shake out for the lower chamber. Only with the U.S. House, the equation is much larger.
How many House seats are up for election in 2024? All of them. That’s right, the entire chamber sheds its skin every two years, making it (almost) always an election cycle for U.S. Representatives.
This year, Democrats face a tough map if they hope to regain control of the House, while Republicans have a slight advantage in growing their majority.
How many House seats are up for reelection in 2024?
Unlike the Senate, the House of Representatives is not sectioned off so that only certain members are up for re-election each year. Instead, representatives face re-election every two years, meaning in 2024 all 435 seats will be up for election.
How many voting members are in the House of Representatives?
There are 435 members of the House. Each state gets a different number based on population.
California, the nation’s most populous state has 52 representatives. Wyoming, which has the smallest population has only one representative. Other states with just one representative include Alaska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, and Delaware.
How many Democrats are in the House of Representatives in 2023?
After the 2022 midterm elections, a closely divided House of Representatives emerged. Republicans control the chamber with a narrow majority of just 10 members. The party holds 222 seats, while Democrats have 212.
Races to watch in the 2024 House elections:

Among those seats, 9 are currently held by Democrats and 15 are held by Republicans.

Outside the pure toss-up races, there are several races classified as “leans,” meaning they are competitive but one party holds an advantage. There are 14 races leaning blue for Democrats and six leaning red for Republicans. As 2024 shapes up, those numbers may change.
