Six school districts among the nation's largest districts are holding elections for 14 seats on June 3, 2014. Rapid City Area School District in South Dakota and Twin Rivers Unified School District in California are holding general elections for two and three seats, respectively. Three districts in Alabama are holding primary elections for a total of seven seats, including Etowah County, Mobile County and Montgomery. The winners in these primaries will run unopposed in the general election on November 4, 2014.

San Diego Unified School District in California is also holding a primary election with the lone competitive seat in District B. Incumbent Kevin Beiser is seeking re-election against Amy C. Redding during the primary on June 3, 2014. Both candidates will advance from the primary to a runoff election on November 4, 2014. A total of six seats are unopposed in the June 3, 2014, election and nine challengers are seeking election to the remaining eight seats. Incumbents are seeking re-election in all races except the District C race in San Diego, where newcomer Michael G. McQuary is running without opposition.[1]
