The Leyte Provincial Board (Waray: Sangguniang Panlalawigan han Leyte, Cebuano: Sangguniang Panlalawigan sa Leyte) is the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (provincial legislature) of the Philippine province of Leyte.


The members are elected via plurality-at-large voting: the province is divided into five legislative districts, each sending two members to the provincial board; the electorate votes for two members, with the two candidates with the highest number of votes being elected.
