The 10th congressional district of Illinois will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

Illinois is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Voters do not have to register with a party, but they do have to choose, publicly, which party's ballot they will vote on at the primary election.[4]

Heading into the election the incumbent is Brad Schneider (D), who was first elected in 2010.

Illinois' 10th Congressional District lies in the northeast corner of the state and mostly comprises northern suburbs of Chicago, taking up a majority of Lake county.[5]
