George Lewis Yaple (February 20, 1851 – December 16, 1939) was a politician and jurist from the U.S. state of Michigan.

Yaple was born in Leonidas, Michigan, and moved with his parents to Mendon, Michigan in 1857. He attended the common schools and Albion College, and graduated from Northwestern University in 1871. He completed a postgraduate course in 1874, studied law with a local attorney, and was admitted to the bar in 1872. He farmed until 1877, then commenced the practice of law in Mendon.

He was an unsuccessful candidate of the Greenback Party for election in 1880 to the Forty-seventh Congress. In 1882, running as a Fusion candidate, Yaple defeated incumbent Republican Julius C. Burrows to represent Michigan's 4th congressional district in the Forty-eighth Congress, serving from March 4, 1883 until March 3, 1885. Although elected as a Fusion candidate, he sat with the Democrats in Congress.

He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1884 to the Forty-ninth Congress. In 1886, he ran as a Fusion candidate for election as Governor of Michigan, losing in the general election to Republican Cyrus G. Luce. He was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention in 1888 and twice ran again for Congress, losing to Julius C. Burrows in 1890, and to Henry F. Thomas in 1892.

Yaple was elected circuit judge of the fifteenth circuit of Michigan, serving from 1894 until 1911. In 1916, he became a member of the Republican Party. After retiring, he resided until his death in Mendon. He was buried at Mendon Cemetery in Mendon.
