The 1872 United States presidential election in Texas was held on November 5, 1872. Texas voters chose 8 electors to represent the state in the Electoral College, which chose the president and vice president.
Texas voted for the Liberal Republican nominee Horace Greeley, who received 57% of the vote. Greeley died before Congress could certify the results, leaving Texas electors (and the electors of five other states) free to vote for whoever they chose. All 8 electors voted for Thomas A. Hendricks.
