The 14th congressional district of Michigan will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

Michigan is one of 14 states that uses an open primary system, in which registered voters do not have to be members of a party to vote in that party's primary.[3][4][5]

Heading into the election the incumbent is Gary Peters (D), who was first elected in 2008. Prior to redistricting due to the 2010 census, he served as the representative of Michigan's ninth congressional district.

Michigan's 14th Congressional District is located in the southeastern region of the lower peninsula of Michigan encompassing the northwest side of Detroit, the suburbs located immediately west of the city, the Downriver suburbs adjacent to the Detroit River and the enclaves of Highland Park and Hamtramck. It includes Wayne and Oakland counties.[6]
