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

The province was divided into two representative districts until 1972. Upon its inclusion into the newly organized Metropolitan Manila Area on November 7, 1975 by virtue of Presidential Decree No. 824, the municipality of Valenzuela was separated from Bulacan and ceased to be part of the province's representation, beginning 1978.

Bulacan was represented in the Interim Batasang Pambansa as part of Region III from 1978 to 1984, and elected four representatives at-large to the Regular Batasang Pambansa in 1984. Effective February 11, 1987, the province was redistricted into four congressional districts under the new Constitution, and elected members to the restored House of Representatives starting that same year.

Although San Jose del Monte City was separated from the province's fourth district to form its own congressional district by virtue of Republic Act No. 9230 approved on December 18, 2003, the city's residents still vote as part of the province's 4th Sangguniang Panlalawigan district for the purpose of electing SP members.[1][2]

Republic Act No. 9591, approved on May 1, 2009, sought to separate the city of Malolos from the first district to form its own congressional district starting in the 2010 elections. Like in the case of San Jose del Monte, the residents of Malolos would have still voted as part of the province's first Sangguniang Panlalawigan district. However, on January 28, 2010, the Supreme Court declared the creation of the Legislative District of Malolos City as unconstitutional, citing that the city's population did not meet the 250,000 count required by the constitution. Malolos remains part of the first district.[3]
