. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election is March 31, 2014.
The Colorado State Senate is one of 20 state legislative chambers noted by Ballotpedia staff as being a battleground chamber. The Colorado Senate has a difference in partisan balance between Democrats and Republican of one seat, which amounts to 5.6 percent of the seats up for election in 2014. In 2012, when 16 districts were up for election, a total of six districts were competitive or mildly competitive. Two of those districts, District 19 and District 22, are up for election again in 2014. Both of those districts had a margin of victory of 5 percent or less in 2012.
