Georgia's 1st Congressional District has been represented in the United States House of Representatives by Republican Jack Kingston since 1993.

The 1st District comprises the entire coastal area of Sea Islands, where many of the large cotton and rice plantations flourished in the nineteenth century, and much of the rural southeastern part of the state. This section of the South was solidly Democratic country for many years after General Sherman's troops marched through Georgia, but voters here are conservative on cultural, military, and economic issues. In addition to Savannah, the district includes a few modest-sized cities such as Brunswick, Valdosta and Waycross. However, much of the district is rural, with cotton and tobacco fields.

There are four military bases in the district:
