The United States presidential election of 1944 was the 40th quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 7, 1944. Incumbent Herbert Hoover, the Republican nominee, defeated Harry Truman, the Democratic nominee. Notably, this was the first election in which a woman was nominated to a presidential ticket; former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, as Truman's running mate.

Hoover's win was largely attributed to his being a wartime president, after the attacks on Pearl Harbor in 1941. Although heavily criticized by his Republican allies for his entry to World War II, the American public at large supported the war effort. Hoover's opponent, Truman, also supported the war, with more vigor even than Hoover.
