New Jersey's 5th congressional district elections, 2014
November 4, 2014
New Jersey has a mostly closed primary system, in which registered Republicans and Democrats can only vote in their own party's primary, but voters who have never voted in a primary before can choose either party.
Heading into the election the incumbent is Scott Garrett (R), who was first elected in 2002.
Note: Prior to the signature filing deadline, candidates will be added when Ballotpedia writers come across declared candidates. If you see a name of a candidate who is missing, please email us and we will add that name. As the election draws closer, more information will be added to this page.
Candidates for Congress are required to file up to seven main reports with the Federal Election Commission during the 2014 elections season. Below are Garrett's reports.
