The California Attorney General election will take place on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Kamala D. Harris (D) was first elected in 2010 and is running for re-election in 2014 against Republican candidate Ronald Gold. The winner of the election will serve a four-year term.

California is one of three states to use a blanket primary, or top-two system, which allows all candidates to run and all voters to vote but only moves the top two vote-getters, regardless of party affiliation, to the general election.[1][2][3]
