The 10th congressional district of Georgia will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

Georgia is one of 14 states that uses an open primary system, in which registered voters do not have to be members of a party to vote in that party's primary.[1][2][3]

Heading into the election the incumbent is Paul C. Broun (R). Broun announced in February 2013 that he would not seek re-election, and would instead make a bid for the U.S. Senate seat.[4]

Georgia's 10th Congressional District is located in the northeastern part of the state. The district includes the cities of Athens, Evans, Augusta, Watkinsville and Toccoa.[5]
