This is a listing of the United States Representatives from Delaware.

The members of the United States House of Representatives from Delaware were elected by a popular vote originally elected on the first Tuesday of October, but after 1831 on the first Tuesday after November 1. Terms began on the subsequent March 4 until 1935, from when they began on January 3.

Delaware has always had only one U.S. Representative, except for 10 years between 1813 and 1823, when there was a second U.S. Representative. This person was elected state-wide, at-large, on the same ballot as the first U.S. Representative. The two candidates with the highest number of votes were elected.

Using the arrow in the header, the tables below are sortable alphabetically, chronologically, by party affiliation or by place of residence.
