The Michigan House has a difference in partisan balance between Democrats and Republican of nine seats, which amounts to 8.2 percent of the chamber. In 2012, a total of 21 districts were competitive or mildly competitive. There were eight districts where the margin of victory was 5 percent or less in the 2012 elections. Another 13 districts had a margin of victory between 5 and 10 percent.

Section 7 of Article 4 of the Michigan Constitution states, "Each senator and representative must be a citizen of the United States, at least 21 years of age, and an elector of the district he represents. The removal of his domicile from the district shall be deemed a vacation of the office. No person who has been convicted of subversion or who has within the preceding 20 years been convicted of a felony involving a breach of public trust shall be eligible for either house of the legislature."

In all 110 districts up for election in 2014, candidates from both major parties are running for election. Because of this, no candidates are guaranteed election in November barring unforeseen circumstances.

Two major party candidates will face off in the general election in all 110 districts up for election. Eight of those seats held competitive elections in 2012 with a margin of victory ranging from 0 to 5 percent. Thirteen other elections were moderately competitive with a margin of victory between 5 and 10 percent. Those districts are:
