Des Moines, Iowa: Seven state executive positions are up for election in 2014 in the state of Iowa: governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state, treasurer, auditor and secretary of agriculture.

Six of the seven incumbents are seeking re-election, including Governor Terry Branstad (R), Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds (R), Attorney General Tom Miller (D), Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald (D), Auditor Mary Mosiman (R) and Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey (R).

The final incumbent, Secretary of State Matt Schultz (R), will leave his office behind after this term. He opted instead to seek the open U.S. House seat representing Iowa's 3rd District.

On June 3, voters will nominate candidates from a single contested primary field, the Republican gubernatorial primary. Gov. Terry Branstad was the only incumbent to draw a primary challenger. He will face Tom Hoefling for the party's nomination; the remaining candidates are unopposed and will automatically advance to the November 4 general election ballot.[1] Iowa is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. The primary is closed, but voters are allowed to change their political party affiliation on election day.[2]

In Iowa, all polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Central Time, one of the longest poll open and close times in the nation.[3][4]

Below, Ballotpedia has put together a preview of those upcoming elections.
