The 2014 United States House of Representatives elections in New Hampshire were held on Tuesday, November 4, 2014 to elect the two U.S. Representatives from the state of New Hampshire, one from each of the state's two congressional districts.

The incumbent was Democrat Carol Shea-Porter, who has represented the district since 2013 and previously from 2007 to 2011. She was elected with 50% of the vote in 2012, defeating Republican incumbent Frank Guinta, and the district has a PVI of R+1.
