The 14th congressional district of New York will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 6, 2012.
This is the 14th congressional district prior to the 2011 redistricting.

Candidates wishing to run were required to file by the signature filing deadline April 16, 2012. On January 27, 2012, Judge Gary Sharpe moved the primary date from September 11, 2012 to June 26, 2012 in order to allow for sufficient time to send absentee ballots to military voters.[1]

Heading into the election the incumbent is Carolyn B. Maloney (D), who was first elected to the House in 1992. Due to redistricting, Maloney will run in the redrawn 12th district, and 7th district incumbent Joseph Crowley will run in the new 14th.
