The 5th 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 Matt Salmon (R), who was first elected in 2012.

The 5th District is one of five primarily urban districts centered around Phoenix, Arizona.[6]
