The 1892 South Carolina United States House of Representatives elections were held on November 8, 1892 to select seven Representatives for two-year terms from the state of South Carolina. Two Democratic incumbents were re-elected, four open seats were won by the Democrats and the open seat in the 7th congressional district was picked up by the Republicans. The composition of the state delegation after the election was six Democrats and one Republican.
Incumbent Democratic Congressman Eli T. Stackhouse of the 6th congressional district, in office since 1891, died on June 14, 1892 during the Democratic primary campaign. A special election for the remainder of the term was called to be held simultaneously with the regular election. The South Carolina Democratic Party decided that the winner of the primary election would be their candidate for both the special and regular elections. John L. McLaurin won the primary and defeated Republican challenger E.J. Sawyer in the general election.
