The Idaho Attorney General election will take place on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Lawrence Wasden (R) was first elected in 2002 and is seeking re-election against Democratic candidate Bruce Bistline. The winner of the general election will serve a four-year term. Bistline faces an uphill battle as Wasden has won the past three elections by large margins of victory including his unopposed re-election bid in 2010.

Idaho is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Parties decide who may vote. The Democratic Party allows unaffiliated voters to vote in their primary. The Republican Party allows only voters registered with their party. Unaffiliated voters can choose to affiliate with a party on election day, but they will be bound to that party at the next election as well.[1]
