Massachusetts' 3rd Congressional District elections, 2014
November 4, 2014
September 9, 2014
Massachusetts has a mostly closed primary system, in which the selection of a party's candidates in a primary election is limited to registered members of that party. In Massachusetts, however, independent voters may select which party's primary to vote in.
Heading into the election the incumbent is Niki Tsongas (D), who was first elected in 2007. Prior to redistricting due to the 2010 census, she served as the representative of Massachusetts' fifth congressional district.
Note: Prior to the signature filing deadline, candidates will be added when Ballotpedia writers come across declared candidates. If you see a name of a candidate who is missing, please email us and we will add that name. As the election draws closer, more information will be added to this page.
