Flag of Arizona.png
The 1st congressional district of Arizona will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

Arizona is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. The primary is considered semi-closed. Unaffiliated voters may choose which party's primary they will vote in, but voters registered with a party can only vote in that party's primary.[3][4][5]

Heading into the election the incumbent is Ann Kirkpatrick (D), who was first elected in 2012.

The 1st District stretches along the eastern and northeastern portions of the state and includes Apache, Navajo, Greenlee, Graham, Pinal, Gila and Coconino counties.[6]

Kirkpatrick's district ranks as the 6th most Republican (45% D).[9]

Kirkpatrick is a member of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's Frontline Program. The program is designed to help protect vulnerable Democratic incumbents heading into the 2014 election.[10]
