The 2020 Polish-Lithuanian Federal Election (formally the 51st Polish-Lithuanian General Election) was held on 27 March 2020, to elect members to the House of Commons of the 51st Polish-Lithuanian Parliament. The ensuing campaign was one of the shortest in Polish-Lithuanian history. It was also the first time since the 1888 election that a prime minister attempted to remain in office into a fourth consecutive Parliament.

The Social-Democrat Alliance, led by incumbent Prime Minister Ela Jasińska, won 343 seats, allowing it to form its first majority government and the first majority government in Poland-Lithuania since 2004. Jasińska and the rest of her cabinet were sworn in on 4 April, 2020. The Independent Party, led by Ludwik Król, won 132 seats, becoming His Majesty's Most Loyal Opposition for the first time. The United Conservative Party, led by Anastazja Zając, won 102 seats, becoming the third-largest party in the House of Commons, after having formed His Majesty's Most Loyal Opposition following the 2016 election. The Green Party won 26 seats, the Liberal-Democratic Union won 25 seats, and the Republican Party won 1 seat.

The Liberal-Democrat decrease of 36 seats from the previous election was the largest-ever percentage decrease by a major party in recent Polish-Lithuanian history.

This election also continued the trend of increasing voter turnout after reaching a historical low of only 35.43% in 1992, the lowest voter turnout of any democracy in recent world history.
