The 2022 United States House of Representatives elections in Rhode Island will be held on November 3, 2020 to elect the 2 U.S. Representatives from the state of Rhode Island, one from each of the state’s 2 congressional districts. The elections will coincide with other elections to the House of Representatives, elections to the United States Senate and various state and local elections.

In the leadup to the 2022 redistricting cycle, many analysts believed that Rhode Island would lose its 2nd district and be relegated to at-large status. However, the state managed to keep both its districts. This was credited to an aggressive effort by Rhode Island officials and community leaders to make sure that as many residents completed the 2020 census as possible. Coincidentally, the announcement that Rhode Island would not lose a district was made by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo, who previously served as Governor of Rhode Island from 2015 until her resignation in 2021 to become Commerce Secretary. Incumbent U.S. Representatives David Cicilline and Jim Langevin, who would have been forced to run against each other in a Democratic primary if the two districts were merged, both expressed relief at the announcement.
