The 1st congressional district of Georgia will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

Georgia has an open primary system, in which registered voters do not have to be members of a party to vote in that party's primary. When runoff elections are used, voters must vote in same party's runoff election as they voted for in the first round election.

Heading into the election the incumbent is Jack Kingston (R), who was first elected in 1992.

Georgia's 1st Congressional District comprises the entire coastal area of Sea Islands and much of the rural southeastern part of the state. In addition to Savannah, the district includes a few modest-sized cities such as Brunswick, Valdosta, Douglas and Waycross.[1]
