The 1944 United States House of Representatives elections was an election for the United States House of Representatives in 1944 which coincided with President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's re-election to a fourth term.

Roosevelt's popularity allowed his Democratic Party to gain a total of twenty seats from the Republican and minor parties, cementing the Democratic majority. Also, Americans rallied behind allied success in World War II, and in turn voted favorably for the administration's course of action.
