The Legislative districts of Leyte, namely the first, second, third, fourth and fifth districts, are the representations of the Province of Leyte in the Philippine House of Representatives.

Leyte was divided into four congressional districts from 1907 until 1931, when it was redistricted to five congressional districts by virtue of Act No. 3788.

After the creation of Southern Leyte as a separate province in 1959, Leyte's representation was reduced to four congressional districts starting 1961. As a consequence, the province's districts were re-enumerated, with the remaining first, second, fourth and fifth districts re-designated as the third, fourth, first and second districts, respectively.

It was part of the representation of Region VIII from 1978 to 1984, and from 1984 to 1986 it elected 5 assemblymen at-large. In 1986, it was redistricted to five congressional districts. Biliran was last represented as part of Leyte's third district in 1995.
