The Legislative Districts of Capiz, namely the first and second districts, are the representations of the Province of Capiz in the Philippine House of Representatives. Capiz was divided into three legislative districts until 1957, when Aklan was granted its own representative, reducing it to two legislative districts. It was part of the representation of Region VI from 1978 to 1984, and from 1984 to 1986 it elected 2 assemblymen at-large. Romblon was last represented as part of the third district of Capiz in 1919.
