Digby—Annapolis is a former provincial electoral district in Nova Scotia, Canada which existed between 1993-2013. It elected one member of the Nova Scotia House of Assembly. In its last configuration, the electoral district included the Municipality of the District of Digby, which is the northeastern half of Digby County as well as the western part of Annapolis County.

The electoral district was created in 1993 by merging sections from Annapolis East, Annapolis West and Digby. It was abolished following the 2012 electoral boundary review and was largely replaced by the new electoral districts of Clare-Digby and Annapolis.
