The 2002 United States elections were held on November 5, in the middle of Republican President George W. Bush's first term. In the elections, Republicans won unified control of Congress. Republicans won a net gain of two seats in the Senate, gaining control of a chamber they had lost in 2001 after Senator Jim Jeffords left the Republican Party. Republicans picked up eight seats in the House of Representatives, marking the third time since the American Civil War that the president's party picked up seats in the House (the others being 1902, 1934, and 1998) during a mid-term election. The elections remain the most recent mid-term in which the president's party did not lose control of at least one house of Congress. In the gubernatorial elections, Democrats won a net gain of one seat.

In the gubernatorial elections, Democrats won a net gain of one seat. The elections were held just a little under fourteen months after the September 11 attacks. Thus the elections were heavily overshadowed by the war on terror, the impending war with Iraq, the Early 2000s recession, and the sudden death of Democratic Senator Paul Wellstone of Minnesota about one week before the election.
