The 7th congressional district of Illinois will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

Illinois has a mixed-hybrid primary system. Voters can change parties each year but must declare a party affiliation at the polls. Depending on which party is chosen, the voter will then be counted as registered for that party. Voters may change party affiliation at polls or caucus.

Heading into the election the incumbent is Danny K. Davis (D), who was first elected in 1996.

Illinois' 7th Congressional District includes part of Cook County. It covers the Near North Side and downtown Chicago as well as some of the west and south sides of city and some west suburban areas in Cook County.[1]
