Flag of Washington.png
The 2014 U.S. House of Representatives elections in Washington will take place on November 4, 2014. Voters will elect 10 candidates to serve in the U.S. House, one from each of the state's 10 congressional districts.

Washington is one of three states to use a blanket primary, or top-two system, which allows all candidates to run and all voters to vote but only moves the top two vote-getters, regardless of party affiliation, to the general election.[1][2][3]

Partisan breakdown

Heading into the November 4 election, the Democratic Party holds 6 of the 10 congressional seats from Washington.
