The U.S. House election, 1960 was an election for the United States House of Representatives in 1960 which coincided with the election of President John F. Kennedy and was the first house election to feature all 50 U.S. states. In spite of Kennedy's victory, his Democratic Party actually lost twenty seats to the opposition Republican Party. This may have been a backlash to the major Democratic gains in the previous election. An end to the economic downturn of the middle portion of the decade was also a factor. Nonetheless, the Democrats retained a clear majority in the House.

There were 437 seats: 435 from the reapportionment in accordance with 1950 census, and 1 seat for each of the new states of Alaska and Hawaii.

Notable freshmen included future Senate Majority Leader and presidential candidate Bob Dole (R-Kan.) and future independent presidential candidate John B. Anderson (R-Ill.).
