Minnesota's At-large Congressional District

During the 35th through 37th Congresses, Minnesota elected its two members of the United States House of Representatives at-large statewide on a general ticket. Minnesota then elected a member (considered the 10th seat) to an at-large seat 1913-1915, with the remaining nine representatives elected in districts. Minnesota elected all its members at large for the 73rd Congress, ending the practice two years later.
