The 2014 United States House of Representatives elections in Hawaii will be held on Tuesday, November 4, 2014 to elect the two U.S. Representatives from the state of Hawaii, one from each of the state's two congressional districts. The elections will coincide with the elections of other federal and state offices, including an election for Governor of Hawaii and a special election to the United States Senate.

District 1[edit]

On December 17, 2012, after the death of Senator Daniel Inouye, it was announced that Inouye had sent a letter shortly before his death to the Governor of Hawaii, Neil Abercrombie, stating his desire that Hanabusa be appointed to his seat. Abercrombie decided against appointing Hanabusa and chose Lieutenant Governor of Hawaii Brian Schatz instead.[1][2][3] Hanabusa is challenging Schatz in the primary for the Senate special election, rather than seeking re-election to her House seat.[4][5]
