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

New Hampshire is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Unaffiliated voters may vote in the primary, but in order to do so, they have to choose a party before voting. This changes their status from unaffiliated to affiliated with that party, unless they fill out a card to return to undeclared status.[1]

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.[2]
