The Idaho lieutenant gubernatorial election took place on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Brad Little (R) was first appointed in 2009 and was seeking re-election. He won another four-year term by defeating Democratic candidate Bert Marley and Constitution Party candidate David Hartigan in the general election.

Idaho is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Parties decide who may vote. The Democratic Party allows unaffiliated voters to vote in their primary. The Republican Party allows only voters registered with their party. Unaffiliated voters can choose to affiliate with a party on election day, but they will be bound to that party at the next election as well.[1]
