Elections for three seats in the House of Representatives in Florida for the 62nd Congress were held November 8, 1910.

Background

The Democratic Party had dominated Florida's politics since the end of Reconstruction, with the last non-Democrat being elected to Congress from Florida in 1882. At this time in Florida's history, the Democratic Party's main opponents in Florida were the Republicans and the Socialists. In 1908, the Republicans had contested all three districts and the Socialists two. This year, only one district had a Republican challenger, while all three had a Socialist challenger.
