2014 U.S. Senate Elections

Flag of Georgia.png
The 2014 U.S. House of Representatives elections in Georgia will take place on November 4, 2014. Voters will elect 14 candidates to serve in the U.S. House, one from each of the state's 14 congressional districts.

Georgia is one of 14 states that uses an open primary system, in which registered voters do not have to be members of a party to vote in that party's primary.[1][2][3]

A federal judge on July 11, 2013, ordered the state of Georgia to move its primary in 2014 from mid-July to June 3, so that overseas voters have sufficient time to get ballots in case there are any runoffs, as required by federal law. Runoff primary elections would still take place on August 6, 2013.[4]
