ⓘ 1870 United States House of Representatives elections in Rhode Island

Elections to the United States House of Representatives were held in 1870 and 1871 to elect Representatives for the 42nd Congress, and were held in the middle of President Ulysses S. Grants first term.

Grants administration rocked by a number of scandals including a shady deal for gold speculation that led to the collapse in the market and several deals that have seen high-ranking government officials receive kickbacks and reconstruction winding down, his Republican party lost seats to the opposition Democratic party but retained an absolute majority. In addition, since the Democratic party controlled government is restored in some parts of the South, the Democrats have managed to make huge strides in this election.
