The 2022 United States House of Representatives election in Alaska will be held on November 8, 2022, to elect a member of the U.S. House of Representatives to represent the state of Alaska. Incumbent Republican U.S. Representative Don Young is seeking reelection. First elected in a 1973 special election following the disappearance of incumbent Nick Begich, Young, the current Dean of the U.S. House of Representatives, is the longest-serving Republican in the history of the U.S. House. Young was reelected in 2020 with 54.4% of the vote, defeating Independent Alyse Galvin.[1][2][3]

Following voter approval of Ballot Measure 2 during the 2020 elections in Alaska, this will be the first U.S. House election in Alaska held under the new election process. All candidates will run in an all-party, open primary, from which the top four candidates will advance to the general election. Voters will then utilize instant-runoff voting during the general election.[4]
