The 2014 U.S. House of Representatives elections in Connecticut will take place on November 4, 2014. Voters will elect five candidates to serve in the U.S. House, one from each of the state's five congressional districts.

Connecticut is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Though parties decide who may vote in their primary election, the primary is considered closed as neither the Democratic Party nor the Republican Party allow any voter but those registered with their party to vote.[1]
