The New Hampshire gubernatorial election will take place on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Maggie Hassan (D) is eligible for re-election, as New Hampshire has no gubernatorial term limits, and is running for re-election. The winner of the election will serve a 2-year term in office.

New Hampshire is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Unaffiliated voters may vote in the primary, but in order to do so, they have to choose a party before voting. This changes their status from unaffiliated to affiliated with that party, unless they fill out a card to return to undeclared status.[1] The primary will be held September 9, 2014.

The gubernatorial race is not the only race on the November ballot that could shift the balance of power in New Hampshire. The New Hampshire House of Representatives and New Hampshire State Senate have been identified by Ballotpedia as two of the top 20 legislative chambers to watch in 2014.
