Florida's 24th congressional district is an electoral district for the U.S. Congress, located in southeast Florida. It was redrawn after the 2010 U.S. Census. This district includes Miami, Miami Gardens, Opa Locka, Miramar, Pembroke Pines, and Hollywood.

From 2003 to 2012, the 24th district had been created after the 2000 U.S. Census and included portions of Brevard County (including Titusville) and parts of Orange, Seminole, and Volusia counties. The district encompassed Port Orange, Winter Park, Edgewater, and New Smyrna Beach. Most of that district is now the 7th District, while the current 24th covers most of what had been the 17th District from 1993 to 2013.

The district is represented by Democrat Frederica Wilson. With a Cook Partisan Voting Index rating of D+28, it is one of the most Democratic districts in Florida.[4]
