Yozgat is an electoral district of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. It elects 4 members of parliament (deputies) to represent the province of the same name for a four-year term by the D'Hondt method, a party-list proportional representation system.


Population reviews of each electoral district are conducted before each general election, which can lead to certain districts being granted a smaller or greater number of parliamentary seats. Yozgat's seat allocation has fluctuated from a historical high of 9 seats in the 1950s to four seats today, its lowest level of representation to date.
