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

Idaho is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Parties decide who may vote. The Democratic Party allows unaffiliated voters to vote in their primary. The Republican Party allows only voters registered with their party. Unaffiliated voters can choose to affiliate with a party on election day, but they will be bound to that party at the next election as well.[1]

Heading into the election the incumbent is Raul Labrador (R), who was first elected in 2010.

Idaho's 1st congressional district encompasses the western and northern parts of the state and included the western third of the state capital, Boise, and most of its suburbs, including Nampa, Caldwell, and Meridian. It also includes Lewiston, Moscow, and Coeur d'Alene.
