The 3rd congressional district of Kentucky will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

Kentucky is one of 12 states to use a strictly closed primary process, in which the selection of a party's candidates in an election is limited to registered party members.[4][5][6]

Heading into the election the incumbent is John Yarmuth (D), who was first elected in 2006.

Kentucky's 3rd Congressional District encompasses nearly the whole city of Louisville, which, since the merger of 2003, is contiguous with Jefferson County.[7]
