The 2016 United States House of Representatives elections in Florida will be held on Tuesday, November 6, 2016 to elect the 27 U.S. Representatives from the state of Florida, one from each of the state's 27 congressional districts. The elections will coincide with the elections of other federal and state offices, including President of the United States. A lawsuit challenging the districts under Florida's Congressional District Boundaries Amendment (Fair Districts Amendment) was filed in 2012 and was resolved in 2015. The results of the lawsuit will have major repercussions on the congressional races in Florida in 2016. The primaries will be held on August 30.
