Flag of Georgia.png
The 11th 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.[4][5][6]

Heading into the election the incumbent is Phil Gingrey (R). Gingrey announced on March 27, 2013 in Augusta that he ran for the open U.S. Senate seat currently held by Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Chambliss will retire rather than seek re-election to the Senate in 2014.[7][8]

Located in the northwestern part of the state, Georgia's 11th Congressional District includes Bartow and Cherokee counties and parts of Cobb and Fulton counties.[9]
