May 20, 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 John Lewis (D), who was first elected in 1986.
Georgia's 5th Congressional District is based in central Fulton and parts of Dekalb and Clayton counties and also includes the state capital and largest city of Atlanta, as well as many of the surrounding suburbs including Decatur, East Point and Druid Hills in the Atlanta Metropolitan Area.
Note: Prior to the signature filing deadline, candidates will be added when Ballotpedia writers come across declared candidates. If you see a name of a candidate who is missing, please email us and we will add that name. As the election draws closer, more information will be added to this page.
