Flag of California.png
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]
