The 3rd Congressional District of Nevada held an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Joe Heck (R) defeated Erin Bilbray (D), Randy Kimmick (L), David Goossen (I) and Steven St John (I) in the general election. Bilbray defeated Zachary Campbell in the Democratic primary on June 10, 2014, while the other candidates ran unopposed or did not run in the primary.

Nevada's 3rd was considered a battleground district in 2014. Heck had only been in office since 2011, and although he won re-election in 2012 with a 7.5 percent margin of victory, the district voted Democratic in the 2012 presidential election. President Barack Obama won the district by just 0.8 percent.
