Two down ballot state executive positions are up for election in the state of Connecticut in 2014. The general election will be held on November 4, 2014.

Connecticut is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Though parties decide who may vote in their primary election, the primary is considered closed as neither the Democratic Party nor the Republican Party allow any voter but those registered with their party to vote.[1]
