Voter registration: To vote in the primary, voters had to register by July 28, 2014. For the general election, the voter registration deadline was October 6, 2014.[4]

Arizona was home to three battleground districts in 2014: Arizona's 1st Congressional District, Arizona's 2nd Congressional District and Arizona's 9th Congressional District. All three of these districts were held by Democratic incumbents.

District 1

See also: Arizona's 1st Congressional District elections, 2014

Arizona's 1st Congressional District was a battleground in 2014. Incumbent Ann Kirkpatrick (D) sought re-election in a district with a Republican lean.[2][5] Additionally, Kirkpatrick won the district in 2012 by under 4 percent, and the Republican presidential candidate won the district in both 2012 and 2008.

Kirkpatrick won re-election, defeating Andy Tobin (R) in the general election.

District 2

See also: Arizona's 2nd Congressional District elections, 2014

Arizona's 2nd Congressional District was a battleground district in 2014 due to the fact that the seat was held by a Democrat, but the district had roughly even numbers of registered Democrats and Republicans and was won by the Republican presidential candidate in 2008 and 2012. Incumbent Ron Barber faced no challenger in the Democratic primary. In the Republican primary, Martha McSally triumphed over Chuck Wooten and Shelley Kais. Barber and McSally faced off in the general election on November 4, 2014, in a rematch of the 2012 general election. The election took over six weeks to decide, and McSally was crowned the winner following a mandatory recount that took place after the official canvass and certification of votes on December 1. In 2012, Barber narrowly defeated McSally by 0.8 percent of the vote.[6][7][8]

District 9

Arizona's 9th Congressional District was a battleground in 2014. Incumbent Kyrsten Sinema (D) sought re-election in a district with relatively even numbers of registered Democrats and Republicans.[2][5] Sinema was a freshman incumbent who won election in 2012 by just over 4 percent of the vote. The district was won by President Barack Obama by roughly 4 percent in both 2012 and 2008.

Sinema won re-election, defeating Wendy Rogers (R) in the November general election.
