The 2018 United States House of Representatives election in American Samoa was held on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, to elect the non-voting Delegate to the United States House of Representatives from American Samoa's at-large congressional district.[1] The election coincided with the midterm elections for other federal and territorial offices, including the larger American Samoa general election, as well as the nationwide 2018 United States House of Representatives elections and the 2018 United States general elections.

Incumbent delegate Amata Coleman Radewagen, a Republican who had held the seat since 2015, won re-election to the United States House of Representatives for a third term.[1][2][3][4]
