The 6th 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.[1][2][3]

Heading into the election the incumbent is David Schweikert (R), who was first elected in 2010.

The 6th District is one of five primarily urban districts centered around Phoenix, Arizona.[4]
