Since Kansas became a U.S. state in 1861,[1] it has sent congressional delegations to the United States Senate and United States House of Representatives. Each state elects two senators to serve for six years, and members of the House to two-year terms. Before becoming a state, the Kansas Territory elected a non-voting delegate at-large to Congress from 1854 to 1861.

These are tables of congressional delegations from Kansas to the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives.
