Florida's 22nd congressional district is a congressional district in Florida. The residents of the 22nd district are represented in the United States House of Representatives by Democrat Ron Klein. The district has a Cook Partisan Voting Index score of D+1.

The 22nd district encompasses the coastline of South Florida from northern Broward County to the northern end of Palm Beach County, with a long finger jutting out into the northeastern part of Palm Beach county and another finger encompassing Boca Raton, Deerfield Beach, and Coconut Creek. Also included in the district are the towns of Oakland Park and part of Cooper City.

The district was created after the 1990 Census. Republican E. Clay Shaw, Jr. was elected in the first election for the district in 1992 and was subsequently reelected for six terms until he lost to Democrat Ron Klein in the 2006 election.

The 22nd district was the center of the disputed 2000 presidential election in Florida and the ensuing Florida election recount, which was shut down in the middle of counting of the Supreme Court in Bush v. Gore. The official count had the district narrowly voting for Al Gore.

In the 2008 presidential election, 52 percent of the votes cast in the district went for Barack Obama
