The 2nd 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.[4]

Heading into the election the incumbent is Mike Simpson (R), who was first elected in 1998.

Idaho's 2nd Congressional District encompasses eastern Idaho and the Magic Valley region of the state and other outlying areas, as well as a small portion of the Boise Metropolitan Area, including two-thirds of the city of Boise itself. Other major cities in the district include Idaho Falls, Pocatello, Twin Falls and Rexburg.
