The Legislative Districts of Quezon, namely the first, second, third and fourth districts, are the current representations of the Province of Quezon and the independent city of Lucena in the Philippine House of Representatives.

The province, known as Tayabas until 1949, was divided into two representative districts until 1972. Marinduque was last represented as part of the province's second district in 1922, after its establishment as a regular province in 1920 warranted its separate representation. As a consequence, a minor reorganization of the composition of the districts of Tayabas took place to compensate for the reduced population of the second district.

The province of Quezon (with the sub-province of Aurora, established in 1951) was represented in the Interim Batasang Pambansa as part of Region IV-A from 1978 to 1984. The sub-province of Aurora was last represented as part of Quezon's first district in 1972, and as part of Quezon's representation in general in 1984, after its conversion into a regular province in 1979 entitled it to its own representation. The province elected four representatives at-large to the Regular Batasang Pambansa in 1984. It was redistricted into four 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.

Despite being administratively independent from the provincial government of Quezon since July 1, 1991, the city of Lucena elects a congressional representative as part of the second district, and has retained the right for its residents to elect and be elected to provincial offices through the exception made in Section 452-c of the Local Government Code of 1991 regarding a city declared as highly urbanized after 1986 but before 1992 and whose city charter (Republic Act No. 3271) contains a provision explicitly allowing participation in provincial affairs.
