The 2014 United States Senate election in Alabama took place on November 4, 2014, to elect a member of the United States Senate for the State of Alabama.

Incumbent Republican Senator Jeff Sessions, who has served in the position since 1997, ran for re-election to a fourth term. He was the only candidate to file before the deadline and as such he was unopposed in the Republican primary election and in the general election.[1] This was the only uncontested 2014 election for the United States Senate.
