The 2nd congressional district of Washington will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

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.[3][4][5]

Heading into the election the incumbent is Rick Larsen (D), who was first elected in 2000.

Washington's 2nd Congressional District is located in the northwestern portion of the state and includes San Juan, Island, Snohomish, Skagit and Whatcom counties.[6]
