This is a list of by-elections and scheduled by-elections for the House of Representatives of Howland from its creation in 1949 to the present day. Premature vacancies in the House of Representatives are filled by by-elections, which may occur when a Representative dies, resigns, or for some other reason. When a Representative resigns, he or she would normally tender the resignation to the Speaker of the House of Representatives. The Speaker has a discretion as to when to call a by-election and may not call one at all, for example, if a general election is imminent. At least 33 days must elapse between when the Speaker issues a writ for election and the date of the election itself, and the Speaker cannot issue a write until receipt of a formal letter of resignation. A by-election, like all elections in Howland, must take place on a Saturday.

Brackets around a date indicate that the candidate was unopposed when nominations closed. These candidates were declared "elected unopposed" with effect from the date of the closing of nominations, and there was no need to hold a by-election.
