The 8th congressional district of Ohio will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

Ohio is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Only affiliated voters can vote for candidates in the primary election; however, voters do not choose their affiliation until election day, when they request a party's ballot.[4]

Heading into the election the incumbent is John Boehner (R), who was first elected in 1990.

Ohio's 8th Congressional District is located in the western portion of the state and includes Darke, Miami, Clark, Preble and Butler counties.[5]
