The 3rd 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 Jaime Herrera Beutler (R), who was first elected in 2010.

Washington's 3rd Congressional District is located in the southwestern portion of the state and includes Pacific, Wahklakum, Lewis, Thurston, Cowlltz, Clark, Skamania and Klickltat counties.[6]
