The 2016 congressional election in the Northern Mariana Islands was held on Tuesday, November 8, 2016, to elect the territory's sole Delegate to the United States House of Representatives.[1]

Incumbent Delegate Gregorio Sablan, an independent who caucuses with the Democratic Party, ran unopposed for re-election.[2][3] Sablan, first elected in 2008, had held the seat since its creation in 2009.

The Northern Mariana Islands' non-voting delegate to the U.S. House of Representatives was elected for a two-year term. The election coincided with the elections of other federal and state offices, including the local Northern Mariana Islands general election, as well as the nationwide 2016 United States House of Representatives elections and the 2016 United States general elections.
