Since she was barred by term limits from seeking a third term as state treasurer, Marshall ran for the office of Nevada Secretary of State in November 2014. The general election took place November 4, 2014. Kate Marshall lost the general election on November 4, 2014.
After graduating from the University of California, Berkeley, Marshall taught English and commerce in Kenya as a member of the U.S. Peace Corps. She later returned to the United States and received a jurist doctorate degree from UC Berkley's School of Law, and interned for U.S. Senator Paul Laxalt's law firm in Washington, DC. She later was accepted to the United States Department of Justice's Honors program.
In 1997, Marshall moved to Nevada at the request of the Nevada Attorney General to create Nevada’s Antitrust Unit as senior deputy attorney general.
In 2006, Marshall was elected Nevada State Treasurer.

October 3 debate
Barbara Cegavske (R) and Kate Marshall (D) differed over campaign finance laws, voter ID and same-day voter registration during a debate on Vegas PBS. Marshall criticized Cegavske for failing to spearhead campaign finance and ethics reform during her time in the Nevada State Senate. Cegavske argued that Democrats have held the Nevada State Legislature in recent sessions and failed to pursue campaign finance reforms. Marshall countered that Cegavske was the chair of the Senate Legislative Operations and Election Committee in 2005 and voted against a 2013 proposal for significant reform. Cegavske noted that her committee reviewed hundreds of proposals but committee members blocked most bills due to concerns for their respective parties.
The debate highlighted stark differences between Cegavske and Marshall over voter ID and same-day voter registration. Cegavske supported voter ID during the debate while Marshall opposed an ID requirement due to the potential for disenfranchisement. Marshall argued on behalf of same-day registration at voting locations to increase turnout. Cegavske expressed concern that same-day registration might not be feasible as elections officials would need to verify citizenship and residency on short timetables.
