United States congressional delegations from Florida

Florida's congressional districts since 2017

These are tables of congressional delegations from Florida to the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate.

Unlike many smaller states that generally have continuity in their districts when reapportioned every 10 years after the United States Census, Florida has seen a great deal of demographic change and population shifts since statehood. An individual numbered district today does not necessarily cover the same geographic area as the same numbered district before reapportionment. For example, Adam Putnam and before him Charles T. Canady have represented the 12th District since 1993, which was previously held by Tom Lewis. However, the area they serve identically covers much of the Polk County area previously represented by Andy Ireland when it was part of the 10th District.
