Elections for the office of Arkansas House of Representatives took place in 2014. A primary election took place on May 20, 2014; a runoff election took place where necessary on June 10, 2014. The general election was held on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was March 3, 2014. Ken Ferguson, Win Trafford and Efrem Elliott faced off in the Democratic primary. Because no candidate received more than 50 percent of the vote, the top two vote-getters - Ferguson and Trafford - met a runoff election on June 10, which Ferguson won. Ferguson was unchallenged in the general election.

Arkansas’s Freedom Scorecard
The Advance Arkansas Institute, an Arkansas-based nonprofit research and educational organization, released "Arkansas's Freedom Scorecard" in 2012 and 2013. The scorecard seeks to show how Arkansas legislators voted on the principles the Institute seeks to promote. It measures each state legislator in six categories, which include economic freedom, education reform, good government, personal liberty, small government and tax/budget policy. Scores range from the highest score (100 percent) to the lowest (0 percent). A higher score indicates that the legislator voted more in favor of the values supported by the Institute. Elliott received a score of 45 percent in the 2012 scorecard, ranking 94th out of 97 members of the Arkansas House of Representatives that were evaluated for the study.
Elliott and his wife, Tracie, have three children.
