Flag of California.png
The 24th congressional district of California will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

California is one of three states to use a blanket primary, or top-two system, which allows all candidates to run and all voters to vote but only moves the top two vote-getters, regardless of party affiliation, to the general election.[3][4][5]

Heading into the election the incumbent is Lois Capps (D), who was first elected in 1998.

California's 24th Congressional District is located in the southwestern portion of the state and includes the counties of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara, as well as western Ventura County.[6]
