The Legislative districts of Antipolo City, namely the first and second districts, are the current representations of the city of Antipolo in the Philippine House of Representatives.

From 1907 to 1972, Antipolo was represented in Congress as part of the second district of Rizal. The province of Rizal was represented in the Interim Batasang Pambansa as part of Region IV-A from 1978 to 1984, and elected two representatives at-large to the Regular Batasang Pambansa in 1984

Antipolo was placed in the first district of Rizal after the reorganization of the province's legislative districts under the new Constitution which took effect on February 7, 1987. Upon its conversion into a city through Republic Act No. 8508 which was approved on February 13, 1998, and ratified on April 4, 1998, Antipolo was separated from the first district and elected its own representative starting in the 1998 elections. The city was divided into two congressional districts on December 22, 2003, by virtue of RA 9232, electing two representatives beginning in 2004.
