The 1st congressional district of New Hampshire will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

New Hampshire 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 New Hampshire, however, Independent voters may choose which party's primary to vote in.

Heading into the election the incumbent is Carol Shea-Porter (D), who was first elected in 2012.

New Hampshire's 1st Congressional District is located in the eastern portion of the state.[1]
