The 4th 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 Paul Gosar (R), who was first elected in 2010.

The 4th District covers the entire western portion of Arizona. Mohave, Yavapai, Gila, Pinal, La Paz and Yuma counties are included in the new district boundaries.[6]
