The 3rd 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 John Garamendi (D), who was first elected in 2008.

California's 3rd Congressional District is located in the north-central portion of the state and includes the counties of Glenn, Lake, Colusa, Yolo, Solano, Sutter and Yuba, as well as southwestern Sacramento County.[6]
