The 18th Congressional District of New York held an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Sean Maloney (D) defeated Nan Hayworth (R) and Scott Smith ("Send Mr. Smith") in the general election. In the primary election on June 24, 2014, Maloney ran uncontested for the Democratic and Working Families Party nominations, but Hayworth defeated him in the Independence Party primary. Hayworth also ran unopposed for the Republican and Conservative Party nominations. Smith did not run in the primary, but he ran as an independent ("Send Mr. Smith") candidate in the general.

New York's 18th was considered a battleground district in 2014. Maloney beat Hayworth in 2012 by a mere 3.7 percent margin of victory, and President Barack Obama won the district by only 4.3 percent. This election was also expected to be competitive because Maloney and Hayworth faced off only two years prior. Hayworth held a U.S. House seat in the 19th District from 2010-2012, and after New York's redistricting, was defeated by Maloney in the 2012 18th Congressional District election.
