The 5th 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 Mike Quigley (D), who was first elected in 2009.

Illinois' 5th Congressional District spans much of the north side of the City of Chicago from Lake Michigan into the western suburbs. It includes Schiller Park, Franklin Park, River Grove, Elmwood Park, Northlake and Melrose Park. Wrigley Field and Chicago's Boystown are both located in this district, along with the Chicago neighborhoods of Lakeview, Uptown and Lincoln Park.
