Voters in 26 states filled secretaries of state seats on November 4, 2014. Republicans held 17 of 26 (65.4 percent) of the secretary of state seats up for election in 2014. There was significant turnover this fall, as 10 out of 26 (38.5 percent) incumbents did not file for re-election or could not run due to term limits. Republicans gained one seat in the 2014 elections after Barbara Cegavske (R) won the race to replace Ross Miller (D) in Nevada.[1]
