The Legislative District of Aurora is the current representation of the province of Aurora in the Philippine House of Representatives.

From 1907 to 1972 the areas now under the jurisdiction of Aurora were represented as part of the first district of Tayabas (renamed Quezon in 1949). Quezon and the sub-province of Aurora (established in 1951) were represented in the Interim Batasang Pambansa as part of Region IV-A from 1978 to 1984.

Aurora was proclaimed as a regular province on August 13, 1979 through Batas Pambansa Blg. 7 enacted on November 21, 1978. The province elected its first separate representative to the Regular Batasang Pambansa in 1984. Aurora maintained its separate representation under the new Constitution which took effect on February 7, 1987, and elected its member to the restored House of Representatives starting that same year.
