1 Election dates are subject to change.  This chart will be updated as additional information becomes available.

2 In Connecticut and Utah, conventions are held by the political parties prior to the congressional primary.  In Virginia, parties may choose to nominate congressional candidates by convention rather than by primary election. (In other states, such as Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas and West Virginia, it is possible that minor parties may schedule conventions to nominate congressional candidates.)

3 In AO 2000-29 [PDF], the Commission determined that the last day to qualify for a position on the general election ballot in Louisiana--in this case 08/22/14--must be considered the primary election date for Louisiana candidates.  See 11 CFR 100.2(c)(4)(i).  The election for candidates seeking federal office is the general election scheduled for 11/04/14. Additionally, under state law if no candidate in the 11/04/14 general election receives over 50 percent of the vote, a runoff election will be held on 12/06/14.
