The Legislative Districts of Albay, namely the first, second and third districts, are the current representations of the province of Albay in the Philippine House of Representatives.

Albay was divided into three congressional districts from 1907 to 1931. The fourth district, comprising the sub-province of Catanduanes, was created by virtue of Act No. 3617 enacted in 1929, and elected its own representatives from starting 1931. Since the conversion of Catanduanes into a regular province by virtue of Commonwealth Act No. 687 enacted on September 26, 1945 and the election of its first representative starting in 1946, the province's congressional districts has been reduced to three.

The province was represented in the Interim Batasang Pambansa as part of Region V from 1978 to 1984, and elected three representatives at-large to the Regular Batasang Pambansa in 1984. Albay retained its three congressional districts under the new Constitution which took effect on February 7, 1987, and elected members to the restored House of Representatives starting that same year.

The first district of Albay is among the original representative districts from 1907 which has never changed in territorial coverage, along with Ilocos Norte's first and second, Ilocos Sur's first, and Iloilo's first, districts.
