The 3rd 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 Raul Grijalva (D), who was first elected in 2002.

The 3rd District is located in the southern portion and southwestern corner of the state. Yuma, Maricopa, Pima and Santa Cruz counties are included in the new district boundaries.[6]
