Elections for the office of New Mexico House of Representatives took place in 2014. A primary election took place on June 3, 2014, and a general election took place on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was February 4, 2014. Incumbent Kelly K. Fajardo was unopposed in the Republican primary, while Teresa K.E. Smith De Cherif defeated Andrew Barreras in the Democratic primary. Fajardo defeated Smith De Cherif in the general election.[1][2]

The New Mexico House of Representatives was a battleground chamber that Ballotpedia identified as having the opportunity to switch partisan control in 2014. The New Mexico House had a difference in partisan balance between Democrats and Republican of four seats, which amounted to 5.7 percent of the chamber. District 7 in the House was identified by Ballotpedia, the Sante Fe New Mexican and the New Mexico Telegram as a battleground district that would be key in determining control of the New Mexico House of Representatives. Incumbent Kelly K. Fajardo (R) was targeted by Democrats because she skipped a vote last legislative session to raise the state's minimum-wage. In the general election, Fajardo defeated Teresa K.E. Smith De Cherif (D). Smith De Cherif defeated Andrew Barreras in the Democratic primary. Fajardo narrowly defeated Barreras in 2012.[3][4]
