Åland is an electoral district represented in the Parliament of Finland. It covers the autonomous administrative region of Åland, with a population of 26,711 (as of 2005). It is the smallest constituency in Finland, and the only one that only elects one member of parliament. The region is guaranteed a special status in Finnish law, whereby it will always have at least one representative even if its population would not entitle it to one.

Continental Finnish political parties do not operate in Åland, and instead the region has its own parties. Elections to the Parliament are contested through common lists.

The current member of parliament for Åland is Elisabeth Nauclér (Borgerlig allians).
