Two down ballot state executive positions were up for election in the state of Nevada in 2014. The two down ballot offices on the ballot in 2014 were the Nevada Treasurer and the Nevada Controller. The general election took place November 4, 2014.

Voters in Nevada were tasked with picking new officeholders for both positions, as term limits prevented incumbents Kate Marshall and Kim Wallin from seeking re-election to the treasurer and controller's offices, respectively. Dan Schwartz (R) won the race for the treasurer's office against Kim Wallin (D) and Kress Cave (I) in the general election. The race to replace Wallin at the controller's office included Ron Knecht (R), Andrew Martin (D) and Tom Jones (I). Knecht defeated Martin and Jones to replace Wallin in the controller's office.

Nevada is one of 12 states to use a strictly closed primary process, in which the selection of a party's candidates in an election is limited to registered party members.[1][2][3]
