Compiled by Greg Giroux (Twitter @greggiroux)

RED-shaded row means district flipped from Democratic to Republican control; BLUE-shaded row means district flipped from Republican to Democratic. All contests D-vs-R unless otherwise noted.
4
The "DATE" column refers to when the winning candidate clinched a berth in Congress. The "RESULT" column lists the vote percentages for the top two candidates. In some cases the winner and runner-up were of the same political party. Some special elections drew higher participation because they coincided with regularly scheduled elections.
