Members of the U.S. House of Representatives Not Seeking Reelection in 2018

All 435 House seats will be contested in 2018, as they are every two years. The following table reflects current incumbents that have announced they will not seek another term or who lost in their party's primary for renomination.

In addition, there are seven vacancies in the House: 

  • FL-6 Republican Ron DeSantis resigned, effective September 1, to focus on the gubernatorial race. A special election will not be held; the seat will be vacant until January
  • MI-13 This seat was held by Democrat John Conyers, Jr. Special election is November 6th; the Democratic nominee Rashida Tlaib will only have write-in opposition.
  • OK-1 This seat was held by Republican Jim Bridenstine. There will be no special election. Instead, whomever wins the general election on November 6th will be appointed by the governor to fill the remainder of the term.  
  • NY-25 This seat was held by Democrat Louise Slaughter. Special election is November 6th.
  • PA-7 This seat was held by Republican Pat Meehan who resigned April 27th. Special election is November 6th.
  • PA-15 This seat was held by Republican Charlie Dent who resigned May 12th. Special election is November 6th.
  • WV-3 This seat was held by Republican Evan Jenkins who resigned September 30. The seat will remain vacant until January.

Note that the Pennsylvania special elections will take place within the current congressional district borders, not those created by redistricting.
