The Cygnian federal election of 1824 was held in Cygnia on Saturday, 4 December 1824, to elect the members of the 9th Cygnian Congress' House of Representatives. Incumbent Chancellor George Canning led the Tories into the election as he sought a second term; he was challenged by the leader of the Federalists, former Chancellor Charles Grey. Chancellor Canning successfully defended his majority, albeit reduced to one of just two seats, and began his second term as Chancellor.
