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

The province was divided into three congressional districts from 1907 to 1919. Abra was last represented as part of the province's now-defunct third district in 1919, after its re-establishment as a province on March 3, 1917 by virtue of Act No. 2683 warranted its separate representation, thereby reducing Ilocos Sur to two districts.

The enactment of Act No. 2877 in 1920 reorganized northwestern Luzon, by abolishing the sub-province of Amburayan in the undivided Mountain Province and annexing several of its municipal entities—Alilem, Sigay, Sugpon, Suyo, and its capital Tagudin—to Ilocos Sur. The Lepanto sub-province townships of Angaki, Concepcion, San Emilio and its capital Cervantes were also placed under the jurisdiction of Ilocos Sur.

The province was represented in the Interim Batasang Pambansa as part of Region I from 1978 to 1984, and elected two representatives at-large to the Regular Batasang Pambansa in 1984. Ilocos Sur retained its two 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 Ilocos Sur is among the original representative districts from 1907 which has never changed in territorial coverage, along with Albay's first, Ilocos Norte's first and second, and Iloilo's first, districts.
