Halvor Olaus Christensen (1800–1891) was a Norwegian politician.

He was elected to the Norwegian Parliament in 1833, 1836, 1839, 1842, 1845, 1848, 1854, 1862, 1865, 1868 and 1871. He represented the constituency of Stavanger, which was renamed Stavanger og Haugesund on the last two occasions. He worked as a stipendiary magistrate (byfoged) and town clerk (byskriver) throughout the whole period, having been appointed in 1832, as well as chief of police only during the first six terms.[1] During the 1848 term he was President of the Storting, together with Georg Prahl Harbitz, Hans Riddervold and Carl Valentin Falsen.[2]
