The 5th congressional district of Kentucky will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

Kentucky has a closed primary system, in which the selection of a party's candidates in a primary election is limited to registered members of that party.

Heading into the election the incumbent is Hal Rogers (R), who was first elected in 1980.

Kentucky's 5th Congressional District is located in the heart of Appalachia in southeastern Kentucky. Located within the district are the cities of Pikeville, Middlesborough and Somerset. Boyd, Carter, Rowan, Elliot, Lawrence, Martin, Johnson, Morgan, Magofflin, Floyd, Pike, Knott, Letcher, Perry, Breathitt, Lee, Owsley, Clay, Jackson, Laurel, Knox, Bell, Whitley, McCreary, Rockcastle, Lincoln, Pulaski and Wayne counties are included in this district.[1]
