The Vermont lieutenant gubernatorial election will take place on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Phillip Scott (R) was first elected in 2010 and is eligible to seek re-election.

Vermont is one of 14 states that uses an open primary system, in which registered voters do not have to be members of a party to vote in that party's primary.[1][2][3]

Race background

The absence of a Democratic candidate in this race, coupled with Vermont's current leftward lean, mean that the third-party candidates running for Vermont Lieutenant Governor, Dean Corren of the Vermont Progressive Party and Marina Brown of the Liberty Union Party, have a real chance of winning a statewide office.

Dean Corren has a particular advantage because he has qualified for public funding, according to Ballot Access News.[7] The requirements to receive public funding in Vermont are quite strict and Corren is the only candidate to qualify since 2004. This is likely to give him a financial advantage over the other candidates including incumbent Republican Phillip Scott.
