The 2014 California gubernatorial election will take place on November 4, 2014, to elect the Governor of California. Incumbent Democratic Governor Jerry Brown is running for re-election to a second consecutive and fourth overall term in office. Although Governors are limited to lifetime service of two terms in office, Brown previously served as Governor from 1975 to 1983 and the law only affects terms served after 1990.[1][2][3]

Under California's new nonpartisan blanket primary law, all candidates will appear on the same ballot, regardless of party. In the primary, voters may vote for any candidate, regardless of their party affiliation. The top two finishers — regardless of party — advance to the general election in November, even if a candidate manages to receive a majority of the votes cast in the primary election. Louisiana and Washington are the only other states with this system, a so-called "jungle primary".

Primary election[edit]

A certified list of candidates will be released by the Secretary of State on March 27, 2014. The primary election will take place on Tuesday, June 3, 2014, from 7am to 8pm.[4]
