The Legislative Districts of Lanao del Norte, namely the first and second districts are the representations of the Province of Lanao del Norte in the Philippine House of Representatives. Lanao del Norte was part of the representation of Lanao until 1961, when it was granted its own representation. It became part of the representation of Region XII from 1978 to 1984. In 1986, it was divided into two legislative districts.

The passage of Republic Act 9724 separates the highly urbanized city of Iligan from the first congressional district of Lanao del Norte to form its own congressional district starting in the 2010 elections. Republic Act 9774 enacted on November 17, 2009 reapportions the remaining population of the province between its two districts.
