Both of Florida's seats to the United States House of Representatives
Elections to the United States House of Representatives in Florida were held November 2, 1880 for the 47th Congress. These elections were held at the same time as the 1880 presidential election and election for governor.
The Democrats had gained complete control of Florida's congressional delegation in 1878, although the results of the election in the 2nd district were successfully challenged, so that a single Republican represented Florida in the House for the last two months of the 46th Congress.

For the fourth time in a row, the election in the 2nd district was contested. Horatio Bisbee, Jr. (R) successfully contested the election of Jesse J. Finley (D) and was seated June 1, 1882. Bisbee had also been on the winning side of an electoral dispute after the 1878 election, and on the losing side of an electoral dispute in 1876, while Finley had been on the winning side of electoral disputes in 1874 and 1876.
