American Samoa's at-large congressional district encompasses the entire U.S. territorial region of American Samoa. The territory does not have a voting member of Congress but does elect a delegate who can participate in debates and vote in committees of which they are a member. Amata Coleman Radewagen is the current delegate of the islands.

From 1970 to 1978, American Samoa sent an unofficial delegate-at-large to lobby for formal admission to the House of Representatives; they were A. U. Fuimaono from 1970 to 1974, and A. P. Lutali from 1975 to 1977.
