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

Maine is one of 12 states to use a strictly closed primary process, in which the selection of a party's candidates in an election is limited to registered party members.[1][2][3]
