The Fourth Federal Electoral District of Chihuahua (IV Distrito Electoral Federal de Chihuahua) is one of the 300 Electoral Districts into which Mexico is divided for the purpose of elections to the federal Chamber of Deputies and one of nine such districts in the state of Chihuahua.

It elects one deputy to the lower house of Congress for each three-year legislative period, by means of the first past the post system.

Under the 2005 districting scheme, Chihuahua's Fourth District covers the southern portion of Ciudad Juárez.[1]

The district's head town (cabecera distrital), where results from individual polling stations are gathered together and collated, is the city of Ciudad Juárez.
