California's 8th congressional district covers most of the City and County of San Francisco, California, USA, except for the south-western parts of the city that are part of the 12th District.

The 8th district is one of the most reliably Democratic districts in the country, though progressive third parties like the Green Party often poll well in the district. It is geographically the smallest congressional district in the nation outside of New York City. Democrat Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader from 2002 to 2007, and the current Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, has represented the district since 1993, when the area was redistricted from the ushr|California|5|5th district.
